Mark Minasi’s mini-IT conference is back in action in 2012.  It might be mini in size, but it swings a big game in content.  The speakers include big conference names like Mark Minasi and Don Jones.  You’ll also find a bunch of MVPs, Microsoft employees, and industry experts speaking and attending.  Being a mini-conference, this is a place where you can get to spend time with these people without the having to run away to some meeting or their next session.

This is the first Minasi Conference I won’t be able to attend.  Unfortunately my calendar is nuts and a few things, like this and the Vienna PubForum, have had to be dropped Sad smile

  1. Shame you can’t make the Vienna event, really enjoyed your presentation at the last one. Will you present over tinternet?

    • Nope – that kind of thing doesn’t work. Can’t trust hotel Internet for anything.
