This promises to be one of the biggest and best we've had!
What is Code Camp?
Code Camps were started right here in New England in 2004. Now hosted around the world, they are free events, held outside of work hours, that are run by the community, for the community (as described in the Code Camp Manifesto).
Like all Code Camps, CC10 features a high signal to noise ratio (i.e. "no marketing fluff, just stuff".) Sessions are entirely proposed and delivered by the developer community, with the focus on developer content, practices, and code - no marketing. (See below if you're interested in speaking!)
It's free and requires only an investment of your time, so come to learn and share with hundreds of fellow New England area developers. And if that's not enough, you'll probably walk away with some swag as well!
Code Camp would be a lot people standing around randomly chatting if it weren't for the people who volunteer their time and expertise run sessions. People just like you.
Code Camps are an easy way to get into speaking; Nobody expects every speaker to be a seasoned veteran of national conferences. In fact, Code Camps are made better because we hear from so many new voices twice a year.
There's no set limit on topics - whatever technology area you're passionate about is exactly the right topic for Code Camp.
- Sign in to an existing account or create a new one at TheDevCommunity.org site.
- Complete a Speaker Registry profile (if you don't already have one.)
- Go to the Code Camps home page.
- Next to the CC10 entry, you should see a "Submit a Session" link.
- Submit as many sessions as you'd like.
- Please ensure that you also register as an attendee.
Submissions must be received by Friday, September 5th. However, we recommend you get them in earlier so we don't discover last-minute overlaps in topics.
Code Camp can't happen without you, our speakers, so thank you!
