SoCal Code Camp 2012 – Los Angeles

SoCal Code Camp Fun Facts:

Rumor has it that Captain James T. Kirk attended his first Code Camp in the year 2043 at the age of 10 and that the connections with other brilliant minds that he made at Code Camps enabled him to reprogram the Starfleet Academy computer to make the “no-win scenario” of the Kobayashi Maru test “winnable”.  This, again, is solid proof of the value of Code Camps!

Here’s a big THANK YOU for the Speakers, Sponsors, and Attendees who have engaged thus far!  The weekend of Oct 13/14 is shaping up to be another great event and an amazing value to all who engage!  It’s coming up fast so why not post your event and/or RSVP today?

As a reminder:

  • Meaningful tech and proficiency tips are … SHARED FREELY… by gurus and your developer peers.
  • YOU get to hang out with the experts and your “cool” developer peers which might lead to that that meaningful connection and/or information that takes YOUR career to the next level.
  • Attendees receive raffle tickets and a chance to win amazing raffle prize offerings.
  • Tickets to the FREE Geek Dinner will be available to Saturday attendees (while supplies last) which offer another opportunity to network with movers and shakers or to simply have some fun!
  • The Sunday lunch taco-bar is returning which is another great value-add for Code Campers!

Looking for some specific action items that YOU can do today to help make YOUR Code Camp the best ever (we’re psychic & we knew this was what you were thinking…)?

  1. RSVP if you haven ‘t already done so!  RSVP now at
  2. Submit a session HERE & share something of interest that could help others (scroll to the bottom to add a new session).
