On Saturday we held Edmonton Code Camp 2008 downtown at MacEwan. Code Camp is an all-day event by developers, for developers. The only rule for presentations is that you have to show some code! Otherwise, it’s just a great opportunity to meet other developers in the community, and learn from one another.
We had three tracks of content. For posterity, here’s a list of the presentations we had:
- Threat Modeling by David Woods
- Logical Layering by Donald Belcham
- Silverlight Game Programming by Ashley Reddy
- How to win friends and influence people with Facebook in .NET by Bil Simser
- Passwords are Dying by David Woods
- Intro to jQuery by Tom Opgenorth
- Checking out the new ASP.NET Chart Control by John Bristowe
- Building Really Cool Apps with WPF by Bil Simser
- Testing your application with jQuery by Mark Bennett
- State & Interaction Based Testing in the Real World by Shane Coutrille
- Fluent Interfaces by Donald Belcham
A large group of us went to Metro for lunch, which wasn’t the best idea because we were half an hour late getting started again in the afternoon! It turned out okay though.
Thanks to everyone who came out on Saturday, it was great to meet all of you! In particular, I was surprised at the number of Twitter users in attendance. For a smaller event, there was sure a lot of tweets posted!
Big thanks also to Steven Rockarts, who did most of the heavy lifting to get the event off the ground.
Let’s make next year’s code camp bigger and better!
