These essential (and indispensable) tools in our business would never have been possible without a great man: Joel Spolsky, which we are very proud to welcome for the next MiXiT edition.
Besides having worked on flagship projects and designed incredible tools, Joel is also known for his [Test] (http://french.joelonsoftware.com/Articles/TheJoelTest.html) which measures whether a company is attractive to developers. He’s indeed one of the great defenders of the developer cause. He’s the first to claim, "If you commit, you have the power!".
We were dreaming of it for years, and Joel is finally OK for coming at MiXiT. He’s one of those people who inspire us every day and remind us that we’re lucky to have such a great job! So his keynote only would be a good reason to not miss MiXiT!
