Fairfield / Westchester Code Camp

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

8:00 AM to 6:00 PM

The Fairfield / Westchester User Groups are proud to present our 3rd Annual Fairfield / Westchester Code Camp!  As in the past, this event will be held at the University of Connecticut, Stamford Campus.

We will once again hold 24 sessions (75 minutes each) across 4 tracks, given by some of the best regional and local developers, and will include topics such as LINQ, Azure, C# 4.0, PowerShell, F#, SQL Analysis Services, MVC, Silverlight, and so much more!

As usual, we will have giveaways, food, and coffee.  More details, and the schedule, will be posted on the Code Camp website as they are solidified.

Please help us spread the word!

Seating is limited and our focus is technology.  No Recruiters, please.

As you may have guessed from our prior Code Camp events, it takes the efforts of a lot of people to help run the event smoothly.  So, we are looking for your help in running this year's Code Camp.

We're looking for someone to monitor each of the four rooms throughout the day, for technical support, if needed (rare), reminder announcements, and to help direct attendees to other sessions before and after each session.

In addition, we're looking for people to help our existing staff handle the registration desk in the morning, and to help us setup and coordinate the food at breakfast and lunch.

In total, we're looking for about 8 volunteers to help us run this as smoothly as possible.  Anyone's help would be greatly appreciated.  We will brief you way ahead of time, and we will coordinate with everyone to make sure you get to work the same sessions you want to attend.

If you are able to help out, please email Mark Freedman at Mark@FairfieldWestchester.net.  Thanks!
