Portland (and SW Washington) CodeCamp 2006
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!
