MIX11 is just like the Kinect – you are the controller! MIX, Microsoft’s conference on web and mobile technologies and its most right-brained, designer-friendly gathering, takes place in Las Vegas from April 12th through 14th. They opened the door to session submissions a little while back, and now it’s time to vote for which sessions should take place. As expected, a number of Canadian developers – all of whom have spoken at TechDays and other Canadian developer events – have had their submissions accepted and they now need your support!
Please take a look at the sessions proposed by our Canadian developer friends listed below and vote for them! And vote soon – the voting closes this Friday, February 4th at 3:00 a.m. Eastern (12:00 midnight Pacific).
