Update: This may be the most important thing you read all SXSW. I will be talking to developers and designers all weekend. I will be at the events below. So what? I will be giving away a lot of Microsoft Surfaces, too. I encourage you to do two things: 1.) Find me at one of these listed events. 2. Follow me on Twitter/FourSquare to find out where I’m at any given time!
SXSW is just around the corner. Just like last year, I’ll be spending more time at unofficial events than I will at the actual conference. This year I’ll be running around hosting events with developers and partners all across Austin.
I’ve highlighted those events with which I’m directly involved. I hope you’ve RSVP’d for each of them!
Thursday, March 7th
Friday, March 8th
- Start the conference off right by connecting with locals, friends from out of town and Refreshers from around the globe at the Refresh Lunch – 5th Annual Web Developer kickoff lunch.
- Unity Game Jam @ SXSW
- Game developers and designers! Come have beers and brats with Microsoft & GameSalad.
Saturday, March 9th
- SxSW TechCocktail Saturday
- SXSW #StartupLife Celebration
- gdgt Live
- Dribbble party – Come hang out with the Dribbble crew and the best designers in town for SXSW.
Sunday, March 10th
- Oh, you’re a designer? Well, it’s a good thing we’ve got a UX and Design Social Hour going on at the same time! (Actually, no that’s terrible because I want to be at both.)
- As if that weren’t enough, Bing Fund is ALSO hosting an event this day!
Monday, March 11th
- Another SXSW gaming workshop, this one focused on Unreal: Making Mobile Games with the Unreal Engine Workshop
- MoDevAustin kickoff party
- The Big Nerd Ranch caravan has arrived at SXSW, delivering fun, good fortune, and a look into the mobile future. Check out their Facebook event page (Big Nerd Ranch SXSW party) and be sure to RSVP via the email address.

- Austin on Rails SXSW Happy Hour
Tuesday, March 12th
Wednesday, March 13th
- Sleep. Only sleep.
- Actually, that’s just wishful thinking. I’ll be presenting Azure Mobile Services to Austin Professional Android Developers.
SXSW is opening up their entire Gaming Expo up to the public: http://schedule.sxsw.com/events?lsort=venue_all_days&venue=Palmer+Events+Center
I need to begin resting my body and liver.
What about you? Which events are you looking forward to attending?
