Each week for the next 4 weeks I will be giving away 1 free ticket to the 3rd annual Silverlight MIXer party held in the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas during MIX11. This Silverlight MIXer is an invite only party that I host each year where Silverlight and Windows Phone influencers gather to talk, eat, drink, and have fun. We have also been known to give away some very cool prizes! This year’s party is 6-9 on April 13th at MIX11. Only a valid pass will get you in!

Due to limited budget and fire codes Smile invitations are always hot for this party. This year I’ve decided to offer 4 free tickets, 1 per week, via a contest on my blog. So if you are interested in attending, here is your chance!

To enter this week’s contest you must leave a comment with your twitter ID on this post (so I can contact and announce the winner) with the correct answer. All correct answers by the given deadline (using Pacific Time in the USA) will be entered into a random drawing for the ticket. To be eligible you must:

  1. Leave a comment the the correct answer by the given deadline
  2. Have a valid Twitter ID and leave it in the same comment
  3. Be registered for MIX11

The ticket has no monetary value and cannot be transferred.

This week’s question is …

Name the person who presented the Shazam demo in the Windows Phone 7 portion of the keynote in MIX10.


Comment must be entered by 3/18/2011 12 pm PT (noon) to be eligible to win this 1 ticket. The winner will be randomly selected and announced the same day on Twitter (@john_papa) and on this post.
