The call for speakers for the next Philly.NET Code Camp is now open!  Registration is not open yet.  Attendee registration will likely open in a couple of weeks.  Stay tuned here and to the Philly.NET web site for that announcement.  Here's the official "call for speakers" announcement:

Philly.net is planning the second of three Code Camp events in 2008. They will be spaced four months apart with the next event on May 17 at DeVry University in Fort Washington, PA. The last Code Camp had 385 attendees with room to spare. We are looking for speakers to fill 40 sessions. You are encouraged to submit one or two talks on any .NET related topic (this includes SQL, SharePoint, BizTalk and other servers). There will be 8 concurrent tracks with 5 eighty minute talks. Here is a tentative schedule:

  • Phillydotnet registration
  • 8:30-9:50
  • 10:00-11:20
  • lunch
  • 12:30-1:50
  • 2:00-3:20
  • 3:30-4:50
  • Prizes
  • 5:30-7:30 speaker party

If you would like to speak on May 17, please contact Steve Andrews or Bill Wolff with a session title, topic description, and bio. We will add these to the website and the email announcement that goes out to 3,500+. If you prefer a specific session time, let us know. We will try and accommodate as the schedule permits.

Since there are only 40 sessions, we would like to limit each speaker to one really good talk. We have events planned every four months so you can do different talks at each Code Camp to keep things interesting. We would also like to see one novice/beginners level session in each track. Here are the tracks and track leaders (let me know if you can't manage your track this round, also send a list of speakers/sessions already confirmed):

  • Tools (includes VS, languages)
  • MIX (web, smart client, silverlight, wpf)
  • Framework (wcf, wf, linq)
  • Alt.net
  • Architecture
  • SharePoint/OBA
  • SQL Admin
  • SQL Dev/BI

Remember, this is a CODE CAMP. You don't need polished slides, just some interesting code or applications that developers might enjoy and learn from!
