MIX10 Are you ready to MIX it up?  MIX10 is moving down the Vegas strip a bit to the Mandalay Bay this year, but still continues its mission to bring together developers and designers to explore the art and science of building rich web applications.

This year’s event runs from March 15-17th (with a number of pre-conference workshops as well) – hmm, St. Patrick’s Day in Vegas… odd coincidence or insightful planning?

If you act quickly and register by January 15th, you’ll not only save over 40% off of the registration fee ($795 versus $1395), but you’ll get a free night’s stay at the Mandalay Bay (which may come in handy on the 17th).  Or ply your skills and maybe get a free trip to MIX10 via the 10K challenge – a competition for creating the coolest Silverlight, Gestalt, or HTML5 application in only 10K bytes of code or less!  But hurry, entries need to be submitted by January 29th.

Finally, you can even help shape the content of the conference by voting for your favorites among more the 150 sessions that have been submitted as part of the Open Call for Content.  Voting is open until January 15th.

Still on the fence?  Check out Mike Swanson’s 3-minute overview of the event below: the who, what, when, where, why, and how of MIX10.
