A number of people (including Shawn Wildermuth) have been writing and speculating about the Build conference. I’m about to pack to drive down to Anaheim and wanted to document in the blogosphere my hopes about what will be announced there.
I actually hope that .NET on the client is dead. Well not dead – but IMO .NET has had a good run and it’s time to let go. When I say .NET on the client I mean WinForms, Silverlight, WPF, all of it.
You might ask why someone who has spent 10+ years working on the platform would say that – and my answer is HTML5.
In essence I feel like I am going back to my roots these days (come see me talk about HTML5 and mobile app development at VSLive this fall, for example).
That’s why as of today this site is now renamed www.masteringhtml5.com – I’m going back to my roots.
I’ll have more to come on this topic as the week progresses.
