It's that time again, time for CodeCamp 2006.

The Code Camp Manifesto says this about CodeCamps.

  • They are always free.
  • They are about the code. (No lame PowerPoints)
  • They are never during work hours
  • They are owned and run by the community (i.e. Not Microsoft)

Here's the list of sessions so far. It's not a Microsoft specific event - there will be Ruby, Java, Mono, Rails and WebServices talks. If you like, submit a session! You don't have a to be a 'professional presenter' or have experience presenting. You just have to be stoked about your code.

If you're a Coder in Portland or Southwest Washington, or your a Coding Enthusiast or Hobbyist, a CodeCamp is a very relaxed, non-threatening, non-cliquey way (not to mention free) for you to interact with the community and pick up some valuable information.

It'll be just over the bridge in Vancouver on July 22nd and 23rd, 2006. Head over and register. I'm doing a PowerShell talk, hope to see you there!

Hello from Washington now. I've moved here in Washington and I guess I will be able to attend this event if I'm not so busy.
I tried to register at the site, but I wasn't able to. I kept on complaining about password strength although I followed the instruction. Was I doing something wrong?

We just had a CodeCamp here in Dallas a couple weeks ago (, and it was great.

The Mono and Boo scripting sessions were fun. :)

vbNullString, the password needs a non-alphanumeric character... numbers enough won't do it. A password like "squeegie!" will work, "squeegie1" won't.

It's using the default ASP.NET membership stuff.. I wasn't deliberately trying to make it hard on people or anything :)

Thanks for the pointer. I guess I wasn't really reading the error message carefully. I automatically assumed that it had to have a numeric character. I was able to register for the code camp.

that looks like a brilliant code camp.
any chance of flying over some australians?
