First, this year, we will be requiring attendees to either have an official SXSW badge or two cans of food to donate to the Capital Area Food Bank. With such a huge turnout last year, why wouldn’t we use this as an opportunity to raise awareness and help stamp out hunger in the greater Austin area. A party with a cause! Party details are as follows:
- Free Texas Beer
- Free Authentic Tex-Mex Tacos courtesy of Torchy’s Tacos
- Free Gaming at Kung Fu Saloon including Skeeball and all Vintage Arcade Games
- Free No Strings-Attached Door Prize Giveaways Every Hour (iPad, Android Tablet, Amazon Kindle, Microsoft Kinect, a ticket to TXJS and possibly more)
- Free Swag Bags to Take Home full of Goodies
Microsoft will actually be out engaging and entertaining all who attend to check out the latest version of IE9 and to assist developers preparing their sites and apps now. You do know that IE9 is at release candidate state, right?
