Code Camp 9 – The Schedule!

code camp wkng 08 cropped Code Camp 9 is coming next weekend (April 5th & 6th), and I'm honestly amazed by the response.  (What is Code Camp 9?

We currently have 62 technology sessions over two days and, currently with 415 registrants, we're likely to hit our limit of 500 people!

It's a free event, and with just 85 slots left for registrants, make sure you register now at:

I had to cram session titles in to get them to fit below, but you can see the full session list here.

Open Space Discussions

We've decided to turn the kitchen area into an Open Space concept.  We'll put up a grid and let people toss ideas for informal Birds-of-a-feather sessions throughout Saturday and Sunday. 

So bring your ideas/stories/challenges, pull up a few chairs, and get chatting with your fellow Campers.

See You There!

Thanks to our contributors, who are sending in heaps of goodies for giveaways and swag.  Thanks to our great community of speakers for volunteering to share their expertise.  And of course, thanks to all of you for attending Code Camp 9!

See you next weekend!
