Wow, what a day. It was long, suprising and overall very good. I’m sitting at the airport so I’ll have more details later but I had a great time at Expression Session. I didn’t get to attend many of the talks, but I chatted with a lot of people about RIAs and learned a ton (which is the point, right?). The highlights:
- Â Finally met Lee Brimlow and he was really cool. I was expecting him to actually be a robot because the guy never seems to sleep and pumps out new examples like crazy, but he’s human and he seems like a very fun guy.
- Meeting Tim Sneath, the WPF evangelist. He’s also a cool guy and he has a lot of good thoughts about Apollo, WPF and how all of these things are going to fall into place. He’s also the manager for the WPF/E evangelist team, which I didn’t realize, so it was fun to chat with him about WPF/E.
- Metaliq‘s WPF demo. Metaliq wrote a WPF application that was demoed at the keynote and I thought it was quite good. I’ll describe it in more detail over on ZDNet after I’ve had a chance to play with it in person, but I think it was a good example of a valuable desktop application.
All in all, great fun. I’ll have more when I get home.
