MIX is probably the most well-known and one of, if not the most challenging conferences to present at. It usually features prominent community and Microsoft technology leaders and evangelists and aims to bring together web professionals from all around the world.
As every year, there are virtually hundreds of talk proposals sent to MIX for consideration. Out of these, the ones that align with the mission of MIX to foster the exchange of ideas are selected for a public voting to select the top X, most popular themes and proposals.
I would like to invite you to vote for my WebSharper proposal, it's really simple and all it takes is a single click and a few seconds. You can vote here, or by clicking on the MIX logo on the left. I appreciate your vote and thanks for taking the time to help us spread the news on WebSharper.
Here is the proposal:
With WebSharper you can enjoy all that and a LOT more. Built around the newest member of the .NET language ecosystem, F# and its strong metaprogramming capabilities, WebSharper gives you powerful functional abstractions and convenient embedded DSL syntax to declaratively express arbitrarily complex user interfaces with dependent controls and validation logic (formlets), sequences of related web forms and their data transformation logic (flowlets), and even entire web sites composed of client and server side functionality (sitelets) - all as first-class values and statically type-checked - and yes, you will see red squiggles in Visual Studio if your formlets, flowlets, or sitelets have any inconsistencies. Do these make you more productive? You bet! Not only do you get type-safe access to you web form data, or safe and always correct hyperlinks, but unlike with any other web technology you can safely and arbitrarily compose these building blocks without having to worry about some parts breaking. And to top that, you will also enjoy seamless MSBuild automation and a handsome set of Visual Studio project templates to cater to different scenarios and your needs.
Develop the rich, interactive web applications of tomorrow - now and easier than ever.
