Hi everyone,

The schedule has now been posted for Code Camp next Saturday and Sunday, September 27th and 28th. Be aware, it is subject to change prior to the event, but it’s generally set to go. We have a great lineup this year, featuring 25% more content than last year. Thanks for all the speakers who stepped up! We’ve got everything from database technologies to agile methodologies to scalability to rich interactivity to legal advice to new exciting technologies, and much more! So please, if you haven’t yet, register for this great event, and help us out by spreading the word and forwarding this to everyone you know who might be interested. Registrations help us get an accurate count of how many to expect.

We’re still looking for event sponsors, so if you or your company might be interested, please visit the website at and help us out! There are sponsorships of any level available, and every little bit helps. All donations go toward covering the great venues and events that occur at the camp.

Don’t forget our exciting special events! For starters, there’s the Geek Dinner Saturday night at 6:30 pm at the Suites. This is a great way to meet your fellow campers and speakers and interact and network. It was a lot of fun last year and we’re hoping for a great time this year. Also, this year we have our inaugural Programming Contest! At 3:45 pm on Saturday in the Los Osos South room, we’ll be featuring a Java Programming Contest with prizes and the thrill of victory! More information can be found at Finally, there’s our end of Camp raffle, featuring a ton of books, software, and our Zune grand prize! You must be present to win!

Lastly, we would like to make you aware of our sister event, the Softec Symposium. This exciting business technology event is occurring on Friday, September 26th, at the Embassy Suites. It will feature a keynote by Citrix (of GoToMeeting and GoToMyPc) and concentrate on Remote Technologies. More information can be found at There will be the keynote, several panels, and a trade show. Please pass this information on to anyone who you think might be interested or to any companies who might be interested in getting a booth at the trade show. It’s a great way to introduce yourselves to the local technology community business leaders.

See you at Camp!

Central Coast Code Camp Returns!

June 14, 2008 Leave a comment

Hey all,

I’m not sure how many of you attending our stunningly successful first code camp last year, but if you did, then you know we had 32 presentations by 20 presenters from as far away as Texas, that we had a fabulous “Geek” dinner, that we gave away prizes and swag, including two Zunes, that we had over 120 people show up from as far away as Ventura and Bakersfield, and that it was all FREE to everyone who attended!   A fantastic time was had by all!

So fantastic, in fact, that we are going for v2.0 this September, on the 27th and 28th, the Central Coast Code Camp Returns to the Embassy Suites in San Luis Obispo!

We’ve already got 28 registrants signed up and are looking for presenters and topics.  There are so, so many new technologies out there this year that are coming to the forefront and we want them all properly represented.   So sign up to speak, but just as importantly, sign up to attend!

Also, the old site at bostondotnet that used to list all the code camps is gone, so I’ve thrown one up that hopefully people will start using at the Code Camp List (

Please register for our code camp and come give a talk!
