Vote for my MIX11 session

300x250_Mix11_011011_US_b One of my favorite Microsoft conferences takes place every spring in Las Vegas, and this year I may have an opportunity to speak at MIX11. If you've never been to MIX and you are a web developer (particularly, a "Microsoft web developer"), then you're missing-out on a great conference experience. Personally, if I had to choose between Microsoft-run events, I'd pick MIX over TechEd and PDC almost every time. It's not as big as some events, but it's high-energy, focused, and a great place to talk about all things web and design.

This year, I have the distinct honor of getting a session in to the MIX11 Open Call. As MIX goes, this is your chance as attendees (both physical and online, alike) to vote for the sessions you want to see at this year's event. So, if you're interested (or even if you're not), I'd love to have your vote for my session:

Doing More with LESS for CSS

It's a cool CSS3 talk with lots of practical tips for managing the ballooning CSS rules modern browsers offer. Picked or not, I appreciate your support and can't wait to see some of you in Vegas this April!

[By the way, voting ends February 4th, so cast those votes today!]

Hey Todd, I'm a big fan of LESS, however as far as I know it's severly gimped if you have your CSS in App_Themes...isn't that still the case?

@stevescotthome It really shouldn't matter where your CSS lives. LESS defines new "language features" for your CSS files, and as long as you can properly process those LESS files before publishing your site, everything works fine. To be fair, I've mostly used in an MVC context, so I'll research the WebForms App_Themes issue right away. Thanks for the heads-up.

Thanks Todd, I voted for the mix session (how awesome is their captcha btw)

I just REALLY would love to use dotLESS in sitefinity, but I haven't been able to get past App_Themes at all.

I'm sure there's some brains at telerik who could figure it out :)
