Code What?

Code Camps (started in 2004 with New England Code Camp 1), are free events, held outside of normal work hours, organized by and for the developer community.  They’re a great opportunity to network and to share knowledge without marketing noise getting in the way.

Code Camp has something for every developer - a blend of the technical to the practical, established to new, and beginner to advanced. 

Check out the Code Camp Manifesto for the guiding principles.

Register Now

It’s a free event, so register today.

With the strong interest in all of the new technologies recently available and soon to be released, I won’t be surprised if we reach capacity for this Camp.
