Boston Code Camp 19While’s it’s unlikely Steely Dan will make an appearance at Boston Code Camp, you can bet your ASP.NET that some 200 of your software developer colleagues will be.

Boston is where Code Camp was born, and like the previous 18 editions, this event remains free to attendees, providing a unique opportunity for training and networking via technical presentations (“by the community, for the community”), breakouts, and ad-hoc conversations.

The “Spring” Code Camp will be held on Saturday, March 9th, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Microsoft NERD Center, One Memorial Drive, Cambridge MA.

TWO Great Ways to Participate

  • Submit a session!Share your knowledge and passion for technology – be it Windows 8, knockout.js, Couchbase, or whatever cool gadget or software you’re working on.

    First-time speakers as well as seasoned pros are encouraged to submit topics via the Code Camp site – you’ll see the directions for creating a site account and signing in on the sidebar of http://bostoncodecamp.com (see right).  Act fast though, the session submission deadline is this Friday, February 22nd.
  • Register as an attendee (via Eventbrite). You’ll have at your disposal a depth and breadth of topics unlike any other technical get-together, and it’s in an laid-back atmosphere where everyone is encouraged to add something to the conversation.

Wondering what’s going to be presented? A final list of sessions will be posted on the Code Camp site by the end of the day on February 25th, but you can get sneak peek of what’s proposed via the site’s Sessions tab. Or check out the schedule from this past October’s event to get a flavor of what you might see.

Ok, THREE great ways….

It takes a bit of financial and in-kind support to keep everyone caffeinated and fed during the 10 hours of Code Camp, so if your company or organization would be interested in helping contribute to the event, please do contact the organizers, and they’ll work with you to maximize your investment!

Those “organizers” include Bob Goodearl, Patrick Hynds, Chris Pels, and John Zablocki – so thanks all around to them for keeping the Code Camp fires burning in New England.
