Code Camp 8 – Summary and Thank You


Fritz Onion working session magic[From the "Better Late than Never Department"]

It's been a very busy couple of weeks after Code Camp, with ReMIX and working on the home stretch of "Essential WCF", but I didn't want to forget to post a summary for our fantastic New England Code Camp 8!

The weekend before last saw over 40 sessions by 25 presenters, all volunteering their weekend time to an engaged audience of people who also volunteered their weekend time to attend!

Judging by the surveys we received, this was one of our best Camps yet, with both the session ratings and overall event rating extremely high.   


I wanted to point out Samantha Milowsky's great summary of the event!  Thanks for taking capturing the event in words and photos!

More magazines than you can read!Thanks also to Dave Burke for his kind words in his Code Camp wrap-up

Session Materials

We'll be hounding the speakers to get links to their presentations up on TheDevCommunity site.  Some speakers already have their content available through their blogs:

What actually happened during the SCRUM session?If you thought this Code Camp was packed with information, keep in mind we have a the launch of a certain trio of products coming, so things are going to be very interesting for Code Camp 9 in the spring!

Last, but absolutely not least, THANK YOU to every attendee who exchanged precious weekend time to come out and share, learn, and drive the buzz that makes the New England .NET community one of the best in the world!
