Indy Code Camp 2009 – Saturday May 16th in Indianapolis, IN

The continuing goal of the Code Camps series is to provide an intensive developer-to-developer learning experience that is fun and technically stimulating. The primary focus is on delivering programming information and sample code that can be used immediately. The event is free for attendees. All slides, manuals and demo code are provided to attendees.

Indy Code Camp will consist of 75-minute sessions, with five sessions in each of five tracks. Simple math results in 25 sessions to be delivered by a sterling group of developers. Thank you to the speakers who, collectively, submitted more than 50 proposals. The tracks and sessions are now available for your inspection.  I will also be there manning the Microsoft booth to answer questions and give away some goodies. Download this schedule in PDF format and plan your day, choosing sessions from any combination of the five tracks. For more info and to register, check out the site: http://www.indycodecamp.com/
