AND we will be working with http://www.codecomputerlove.com/ to put together a session in which it is hoped that some of their developers will come in to discuss their upcoming and recent .NET magazine articles on Facebook, creating apps etc. and developing for the mobile web. This might be an evening session open to the public.

Finally, we hope to get The Web Standardistas to drop by for a book signing and fun session for all years and at some stage our dear friend Dónal Fitzpatrick will drop by to demonstrate how he uses his screen reader and the problems we web developers cause him.
