Code Camps are free events, held outside of regular work hours, organized by and for the developer community, offering a chance to learn, share, and network. They started here in New England in 2004 and have spread worldwide.

Microsoft NERDAfter 17 Code Camps in Waltham, MA, this will be the first one in Cambridge, MA at the Microsoft New England Research & Development (aka NERD) Center.  First time visiting NERD?  Here are directions and parking details.

What kind of stuff might you see? Anything for tech pros and developers is fair game, and specific topics vary camp to camp, but take a look at the previous camp’s schedule to get an idea of how things work.

Call for Speakers

From first-time presenters to veterans of national conferences, Code Camps are made great because we hear from many perspectives – including yours.  Have something to share?  The community wants to hear from you!

How? Just create an account on the BCC site, then log in to submit as many session abstracts as you like.  Proposals can be for any technology topic and sessions will likely be 70 minutes long.  See Jim O’Neil’s helpful Call for Speakers guide for more.

The Call for Speakers will close on October 12th.
