The largest developer community event Silicon Valley Code Camp is taking place in less than 3 weeks now.  Almost 3,000 developers have registered for the event and 233 sessions will be presented in the code camp.  SVCC is a community event (totally free) where developers learn from fellow developers.

As usually, Microsoft is a PLATINUM sponsor for the code camp.
