This weekend I got the chance to speak about IE8 and the future (the next version IE9) in a different event from the ones I’m used to speak, MediaCampAthens.
MediaCampAthens intends to bring together new media enthusiasts, explorers and professionals to share the current state and their visions for the future of the web, arts, new media, interactive advertising and marketing throughout one day. MediaCampAthens hopes to unlock the potential of new opportunities within the new media industry in Athens. Topics may include – but are not limited to – Web 2.0, entrepreneurship, design, interactive advertising, wi-fi, mobile media, business/marketing perspectives etc.
The event has more likely an open space format in a way that the attendees decide what they want to hear and discuss.
Although the attendees didn’t come from the Microsoft camp (if you get my drift ) they seemed pretty interested, un-bias, and eager to learn how they can promote their sites and services using IE8 features, like web slices, accelerators and Search providers as well as see what’s new on IE9 with the IE 9 platform preview.
For those of you that didn’t get the chance to be there here is my slide deck.
