It was most excellent to receive a message this evening from Derek Hatchard regarding Atlantic Canada’s First Code Camp. This is awesome! So if you are in NB, Nova Scotia, PEI and heck even Newfoundland, you should totally get your butt over to Moncton on October 15th for what I suspect will be an awesome code camp. Code camps are gaining hugely in popularity due to the massive value that developers can get out of them so I really couldn’t be more impressed to see one get started here in Atlantic Canada. Great stuff Derek!
From Derek’s Message:
I am very excited to announce the first ever Atlantic Canada CodeCamp to be held Saturday 15 October 2005 in Moncton, NB. A CodeCamp is a community-driven, all-day event for developers. Speakers are local or regional developers. Topics are based on community interest. Sessions are original and feature a heavy technical focus (no marketing fluff). And best of all, it is FREE!
We are looking for speakers from the Atlantic region to submit session proposals for this unique and exciting event. An official Call for Speakers with a submission template will be coming very soon. In the meantime, if you are interested in presenting or know someone who would be a great speaker, please email me at CodeCamp@ardentdev.com.
We will also have an online registration process in place soon. Until then, it would be a tremendous help to hear back from you with a response (Yes, No, or Maybe) to the question “Will you attend the Atlantic Canada CodeCamp on October 15?” If your answer is “No”, it would be great to hear why you are not interested in attending. Thanks so much!
