Mix-IT, Lyon, the 5th of April

Last November, we, the Cara Lyon team, met the JUG guys to talk about organising a day of sharing.  After a two hour conversation, we decided to have a conference at the beginning of April, where speakers will discuss Agile, Java/EE new trends (Devops, NoSQL, HTML5). Mix-IT was born.

I must admit that even though my current professional life is overwhelming, I find a real pleasure spending a few hours a week, working with the Mix-IT team.  Up to now, the CARA Lyon organisation was based on a "go it alone" strategy. The JUG guys, even though they are young, work more on an “invite a specialist and find sponsorship” strategy. I definitely can't decide between both strategies today, because I do not know the impact of the size of both communities and their attractiveness to companies.

Here we go :
Mix-IT will occur on the 5th of April 2011 in Lyon at the Epitech Computer School located 5 minutes walking distance from the Lapardieu train station.
Mixity or mixité (in French), pronounce it as you like, but there is only one spelling: Mix-IT and its domain name is

The main speakers with a national profil are already confirmed, and the call out to the local speakers will be made next week.
We are working to finalise the sponsorship to make sure we have a stable budget for this event. If you would like to sponsor it, please contact me by email.

Due to the limited number of seats, make sure you book your place early.
