On April 11th, Max from , two other developers from work and I will be attending be attending Microsoft’s annual MIX conference, dubbed MIX11.
Don’t hate the player: yes, it’s in Vegas and we’re staying at the gorgeous Mandalay Bay, but everyone I know that’s been to past MIX conferences say that from a programming standpoint, they learned at least one new thing that helped them in their career. Whether via the daily coding events or the Q&A sessions with industry experts, they all left knowing more than they did when the arrived.
Best of all, we’re flying out a day early for their one-day rapid-fire coding workshops, or bootcamps. There are two bootcamp sessions: one in the morning and one in the afternoon. There are five bootcamps per session and I can take a total of two; one per session.
I’m attending these two bootcamps…
HTML5/CSS3 with Stephanie (Sullivan) Rewis of W3Conversions – I don’t know much about Rewis but she’s at a Microsoft conference running a very intense class about a very hot topic in the web dev world. So let’s assume she’s good. Plus, how can I have this blog and not go to this?!?!?!
And yes, I’ll slip in a few hands of blackjack.
Anyone else going?
