Next Alabama Code Camp – Jan 23, 2010

23. October 2009 17:46

The next Alabama Code Camp has been scheduled for Saturday, January 23, 2010 in Mobile, AL at the University of South Alabama campus. 

For those of you that aren’t familiar with code camp, it is essentially an all-day geekfest that provides a free training and networking opportunity.  It is facilitated by and for developers.  Typically, the covered technologies in the Microsoft .NET realm, but this certainly not a requirement.  There are usually six to seven 1-hour sessions that run concurrently throughout the day (9 to 5’ish).  Topics range from ASP.NET to SQL Server to C# and just about anything in between.  So, there should be something to interest just about everyone.

One of the primary goals of the code camp is to encourage first time speakers that would like to share knowledge about a topic they find interesting.  So, if you would be interested in speaking (or know someone that would be), the call for speakers is officially open.  Visit the website and you will find a document to download that covers the process of submitting a session for consideration.

This will be the 8th code camp in Alabama and I’ve never been to one where I didn’t learn something new…if not from a session at least via conversing with other developers.  It really is a good time.  If you can’t make it to Mobile, the event will be back to Birmingham later in 2010.

Here is the website:  It runs on Silverlight, so it may require a download if you don’t have it installed
