And while I posting, I forgot to post about Tallahassee code camp. Those in Florida will know that the code camp is in our states capital, right down town at FSU. So it’s a great location. I have to give a big shout out to Saqib Rokadia for all his and Capital City .NET User Group of Florida’s hard work at putting on this small but enthusiastic code camp. I enjoyed presenting and even more so listening to speakers from the north Florida and other southern states area. Here in central Florida we get all the speakers from Florida at our code camps, but going to either one of the northern FL (Tally or Jacksonville) code camps, gives you a chance to here those speakers from outside Florida. For those of you who haven’t made it this far north, I would suggest you try next year, it’s a lot of travel, but a lot of fun. I presented on OpenXML (see my other posts for code) which was I hope well received. Nobody threw any tomato’s so I guess I did OK. The other presentations I went to I enjoyed and learned a lot, some of which I even remember.
Throughout this year and a half of getting into making presentations at code camp, I’ve met a lot of great people, great speakers, great organizers, great sponsors and also great attendees. I encourage anyone to make a presentation on their favorite technology, it doesn’t have to be brand spanking new, there are plenty of people just getting the chance to look into MS technologies, so give it a try. Also support and promote your local code camp, it’s a great way to learn new or older technology and a great place to network with other like minded techies. In the current economic climate it’s not a bad thing to broaden your techie network.
