Code Camp in Portland is in only 10 days. It starts on May 19th and 20th. There's a good list of sessions so far with topics like Cardspace, XNA (XBox Development), PowerShell, Amazon S3, Silverlight, and many others by a great list of presenters. There's also an even party on Saturday, so be sure to register/RSVP ahead of time.

Remember that Code Camp is always free and you're welcome to present in this low-pressure environment. There's still time to submit a session of your own. If you've been thinking of presenting a topic or want to try presenting in public, now's the time to make it happen.

This is an open event, so come talk about Ruby, C#, Smalltalk, COBOL, Robots, whatever, as long as you're excited about it. You can submit any level session from Beginner to super-Expert. What are you working on at your job that is so awesome you're overflowing with excitement about it? Come give a session on that.  Are you building a PacMan arcade in your garage, or hacking your TV remote control? Come talk about that.

CodeCamp is just over the bridge in Vancouver at the WSU Campus. It's an easy drive from Portland. If you're coming from Seattle, there's many hotels nearby.

Spread the word around town as all are welcome at Code Camp in Portland.

Wow. Thanks for reminding me! Last year was great. I even got to see you off in the distance, and you do look like your picture!

Abdu - I'm afraid not, and it totally sucks. I've got an all day leadership lab, then a presentation to the American Diabetes Association. Also, I'm *supposed* to be at O'Reilly RailsConf the whole weekend.

I'm going. I'm bringing my wife and son with me to see Portland area around. We've been wanting to visit Portland since we moved here in Washington. We just passed by Portland when we drove from CA to WA last year.

Too bad, you're not speaking, Scott. Oh well, next time.

Sorry to hear you won't be there. I'm in Portland on Friday to meet with a client and so signed up, thought I might get a chance to meet you and says "thanks!" in person for the mention in your MVP Hacks and Tips. Oh well, maybe next year. Have a good weekend!
