MIX 2009

MIX Is just around the corner and if you haven’t already registered I highly recommend you do! This is one event I look forward to the most each year. I attended last year and I had the most incredible experience learning about Silverlight and meeting so many intelligent people (OK, and I had a ton of fun playing Poker too).

If you are not familiar with what MIX is, MIX is a conference that gathers both web developers and web designers together who want to take their skills to the next level. There are numerous sessions you can attend that teach you the latest and great ways to build the worlds top most innovative web sites.

This year MIX is held in Las Vegas from March 17th – March 20th so mark you calendar! Scott Guthrie, our Corp VP, will be the keynote speaker. You will not want to miss what he has to say.
