Alabama Code Camp - Another Hit

23. April 2006 16:40

Yesterday, we held the latest Alabama Code Camp in Hunstville, AL.  I think it went very well.  We had a good turnout and people seemed to really get a lot out of it.  It is awesome to see the Alabama developer community starting to really come together with a unified front.  I was fortunate enough to sit in on one of Wally's podcasts where he chatted with the user group leaders from Huntsville, Birmingham, and Montgomery.  Based on that discussion, I think there will be an amazing group of developers involved with the community by this time next year.

I would like to thank all of my fellow speakers for taking time out of their schedules to contribute to the community.  A big thanks also goes out to the event volunteers who worked their butts off all day.  And, I would like to personally give a big shout out to Sujata Devraj from Intergraph for doing an awesome job with the organizing and logistical planning.  She played a major role in the success of this code camp.

There is already talk of planning the next Code Camp for sometime around October in the Montgomery area.  It sounds like Bruce Thomas is being charged with the search for a facility that could house the event. If you happen to know of a place, then let him know.
