Just wrapped up Mix. I was on the panel “Making it Simple: Designer/Developer Workflow.” It was a great group of people. I wish we had more time to continue the conversation. I want to thank Barbara from Microsoft for putting us all together.
All the Mix sessions and keynotes are online so be sure to check them all out.
I will write up more about the experience soon.
I’m currently at the airport waiting for the next lag of my flight to Austin for SXSW!
