Bill Jones Jr. MVP Visual Basic Charlotte NC - MCP C# and VB.Net - Founder and President of the Enterprise Developers Guild (.Net User Group)

What’s a Code Camp?  It all started with Thom Robbins, Microsoft techie up north – Vermont, I think.  Anyway, it’s someplace where they have cold winters and get lots of time to think, because he sure came up with a good idea with Code Camp.  You can read the manifesto in Thom’s blog archive.  There’s a Code Camp Wiki for more info.  Since I just noticed that Wiki is hosted by the Boston .NET UG, maybe Thom is a Massachusetts guy?  That’s close to Vermont, right?

 

Anyway, we worked closely with Doug Turnure, one of the Guild’s primary Microsoft tech contacts, to pull off an outstanding Code Camp.  19 Speakers, over 20 volunteers and while our attendance numbers are not yet official, I think we had over 170. 

 

A couple of attendees compared Code Camp favorably with VS Live, so I guess we hit the mark!  Our chairman, Eric Notheisen, has managed over 180 events in his stellar career.  He reports this one went as smoothly as anything he has ever seen.

 

Here’s the schedule to give you an idea of what we covered:

You can find out more at our Code Camp site.  I’m not ready to do it again next Saturday, but by next spring I’m sure a Code Camp will seem like a superb idea.
