INETA Live! – So You Want to Hold a Code Camp

My team within INETA is getting ready to kick off a new project called “INETA Live!

INETA Live! will provide user group leaders and members with an opportunity to discuss a variety of topics oriented towards improving your local developer community. The kickoff for this series will be Wednesday, 3/22/2006 and will be followed by additional events in the coming months.

So You Want to Hold a Code Camp?
Code Camps have enjoyed unprecedented success over the past two years as an informal way to bring developers together to share code. Have you held a Code Camp in your area and want to improve the next one? Would you like to learn how to organize the first Code Camp in your area? Join Thom Robbins, Microsoft Northeast Region Developer Evangelist, and Chris Pels, Boston .NET User Group Leader founders of the Code Camp concept to discuss best practices for building a successful Code Camp. Topics will include What is a Code Camp? How do you get speakers? What are options for a facility to hold the event? and more! This will be a discussion where attendees will have the opportunity to contribute by sharing their experiences and also to get their questions answered.
