Mediasite users, you are amazing. We received many great speaking proposals for UNLEASH 2012, the annual Mediasite User Conference May 7-9 in Madison, Wisconsin, and are thankful that so many of you wanted to share your experiences and expertise with others.
We are thrilled about this year’s lineup of sessions. The complete conference program will be online soon, and until then, here’s a list of the fabulous topics that will grace our UNLEASH stage this year. We can’t wait!
