Some of you out there reading this blog are developers that have either started your own startup or work at a startup. If you happen to be one of those, I’d like to take this opportunity to invite you to a celebration of entrepreneurship that will be taking place next week in Toronto during the 2012 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC).

Join Microsoft and partners Communitech, Extreme Startups and MaRS as they bring together the Toronto startup community, Canadian entrepreneurs, and BizSpark members from around the world.  Great company, conversation, and prizes are guaranteed!
