Pre-Orlando Codecamp 2015 thoughts

Orlando Codecamp 2015 is on March 28th 2015 at Seminole State College in Sanford, FL. Codecamp is a free all-day event covering awesome tech topics centering around, but not restricted to software coding and tools. Attendees get free breakfast, free lunch (there is such a thing), a free t-shirt, a free after party get-together, and of course free knowledge from some great speakers. All of this is made possible thanks to the our sponsors. In return, the sponsors (depending on level of sponsorship) get to setup tables at the Codecamp venue and meetup with a wide variety of tech talents from all over central Florida and beyond. Last year we had nearly 650 attendees and are conservatively estimating the same this year.

This is the 10th edition of the event and only my second year helping organize this event. I was a speaker in the 2013 edition which piqued my interest in joining ONETUG to help run this event. Even though we, the organizers (Esteban, Brian, JT, Chelsea, Breck and myself), belong to the Orlando .NET User Group, we’ve taken great care to solicit Codecamp topics and sessions from all development stacks. A few years back who would’ve guessed that the .NET framework would go open source and Microsoft would become a leading app builder on iOS? I believe that the evolution of Orlando Codecamp’s name, sessions, topics and speakers reflects this brave new world.

Software is eating the world and as technologists we’re throwing a free all-you-can-eat knowledge buffet.

Sign-up to attend Codecamp. Bonus: if you sign up a friend or co-worker. Oh, and we love volunteers!
