Considering a new Code Camp talk

December 11, 2013 Leave a comment

So I’m considering getting back into the ring at code camps. For the past several years I’ve held out of them mostly due to more qualified people handling a lot of the topics, and wonderful personal things like my kids and family taking up quite a bit of time (seriously!). But lately I’ve felt the urge to get back into the swing of it.

One of the things I think is underrepresented, and will likely become the basis of my next talk, is Website Operations, and how you can support that concept via architecture and developer philosophy. This would cover things like email delivery and storage, cache management, web farm management, logging and debugging, change management and tracking, GA versus local web analytics, and so forth. Wondering if people would consider that interesting or boring?

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!
