Silicon Valley CodeCamp on October 27-28

So, you might be wondering, what is a code camp, and what does it cost? Well, it's completely free and completely staffed by volunteers. It's a place you can share your passion for technology with others like yourself, it's a place you can give a presentation on your favorite topic to a receptive audience, as well as go to sessions by others who want to share the knowledge. Typically, there are sessions on all kinds of technologies like Java, Ruby, Python, JavaScript, Microsoft's latest stuff, and even more programming technologies. It's basically formatted like a 1 day JavaOne style event where sessions are pre-arranged and you just choose what interests you. Session submissions are closed a week before the event so you know what you'll be in for ahead of time and you can plan.

I'm signed up to make a presentation myself. I will be covering how you can create Google Maps mashups like this Java User Groups International Map. You can see all the currently submitted sessions here.

Foothill College is the local venue for this weekend event. There is still plenty of time for you to signup to give your own Java Technology presentation too. Regardless, please do register to attend this event. Free community events like this one are what you make of it. Help us make this a great event by joining us on October 27-28 and inviting your peers to join us too.

That's All Folks!
