Code Camps (started in 2004 with New England Code Camp 1), are free events, held outside of normal work hours, organized by and for the developer community. They’re a great opportunity to network and to share knowledge without marketing noise getting in the way.
Code Camp has something for every developer - a blend of the technical to the practical, established to new, and beginner to advanced. Check out the Code Camp Manifesto for the guiding principles.
It’s a free event, so register today and join hundreds of fellow developers for a day of sharing, learning, and networking!
