The agenda has been expanded this year to make room for more traditional magic application development training. This has been accomplished by putting mobile development and integration into seperate session rooms. Developers will have their choice between traditional topics (SQL, merge, .NET controls, etc.) and mobile development or integration topics. We're very excited because this allows us to have more trainers, more sessions and more participation than ever  before.  Please register now!
