Philly.NET Code Camp 2008.3 – Saturday October 11th

It’s just about that time again! Code Camp is returning to the Philadelphia area again on October 11th!  The Philly.NET folks usually host one of the biggest code camps in the northeast.  This one promises to be no different in that aspect.  The code camp will be hosted at the DeVry University campus in Fort Washington, Pa on Saturday, October 11th.

For those of you who live in NY and NJ, the Philly guys made it easy for you to get there.  Fort Washington is to the north of Philly (closer to north Jersey and NYC) and right off the Pennsylvania Turnpike.  They even have their own EZPass-only exit that puts you virtually in the DeVry parking lot!  So what’s in it for you besides a quick drive down the pike?  Take a read through the 50 session line up below!  50 session?!  That’s INCREDIBLE!
