I'm glad to pass along word that all systems are "go" for New Hampshire to run its first Code Camp! The New Hampshire Code Camp will be on February 28th at Daniel Webster College in Nashua, NH from 9 AM to around 4:30 PM.
Registration is free and now open via The Dev Community site.
What's a Code Camp?
A Code Camp is a free, community-driven event that offers a great way to meet, share with, and learn from fellow developers in the local area. They began right here in New England and follow the basic ideas in the Code Camp Manifesto.

Speakers and Sessions Wanted
Because a Code Camp is fueled by the community, it needs you! Been wanting to speak about something, but weren't sure how or where? This is the perfect opportunity.
Submit a session today! Here's how:
- 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.)

- Submit one or more sessions
Any technology-related topic is welcome, from beginners' tutorials, to real-world experiences with current tools and processes, to looks at the cutting-edge and future of tech.
To keep Code Camps free, contributors are needed to provide things from food to giveaways and venues. From the NH .NET User Group site:

Thanks to Pat Tormey (who leads the New Hampshire .NET User Group), who has been doing a great job pulling things together for this event. If you're interested in helping, send him a note.
Thanks also to Daniel Webster College for generously offering use of rooms for this event. Having been there for our last Roadshow (which they also generously hosted), I can say it's a going to be great venue for a Code Camp!
I'll see you there,
