Another Successful Code Camp

30. October 2006 05:44

Once again, the Alabama Code Camp has come and gone.  The third edition of this event went pretty well.  I have not heard the official count, but attendance was probably somewhere in the range of 150.  There were a variety of sessions and most of the people seemed to enjoy themselves. 

The inaugural run of .NET University also went very well.  I am sure the lure of a free t-shirt and certificate of completion was somewhat of a factor, but there seemed to be around 30 people that completed the entire introductory track of .NET Framework 3.0.  I was very pleased with my Intro to WCF session.  There was great interaction and feedback from the attendees.

It has already been mentioned that the fourth edition of the code camp will be held in Mobile.  Although it is way too premature for an actual date to be announced, I am guessing it will be during the timeframe of March to April 2007.  Also, there will be another run of the .NET University held within the Birmingham, AL area.  The date is not locked down as of yet, but it will likely be during early December.  Most of the same speakers from code camp will be presenting.

I will have the code and slides from my presentations posted sometime tomorrow.
