Call for speakers for Fall 2016 CodeCamp is now closed. Our team is now going through the list of submissions.
The session schedule will be posted the week before CodeCamp.
The Northern VA CodeCamp is a FREE community event for developers, by developers. Our CodeCamp allows local developers to network and learn from peers and community experts on a wide range of development platforms and languages.
The original Code Camp was a conglomeration of ideas by many different people across the development community. The idea was simple, provide an off hour forum for the development community to speak and share ideas for them to come and enjoy. The results have been astounding. Code Camps have been held around the world by developers everywhere!
By Developers for Developers. What does that mean?
Code Camps are about the developer community at large. They are meant to be a place for developers to come and learn from their peers. Topics are always based on community interest and never determined by anyone other than the community.
What does it cost? Always FREE!
Code Camps are free for all attendees. The people who support the Code Camps are always volunteers who are generously giving of their time to make these events successful. Sponsors provide support through funds to pay for food and refreshments, they provide door prizes and swag/give-aways to attendees. No attendee information is involuntarily provided to any sponsor.
Community Developed Material
The success of the Code Camps is that they are based on community content. All content that is delivered is original. All presentation content must be provided completely (including code) without any restriction. If you have content you don't want to share or provide to attendees then the Code Camp is not the place for you.
No Fluff, only Code
Code Camps are developer focused events. Presenters are asked to minimize their slide presentations and focus on the code. Some presentations are slide deck driven and it is up to the presenter to make a determination on the best use of their presentation time.
The organizers of Code Camps are developers, too. Code Camps are not owned by any organization or company. It is you, the developer, that we aim these events at. By developers for developers!
Never occurs during work hours!
Code Camps are typically held on weekends, mostly on Saturday, to allow the developer community more opportunity to participate.
