For the third year running, the Silicon Valley Code Camp will be held at Foothill College in Los Altos, California. This is my second year organizing the Java Speaker Track at Code Camp with the help of Kevin Nilson. You can see the full session schedule for the weekend here. You will notice in the session topic tag cloud that Java is the number one session topic at camp this year with 36 out of 115 sessions related to Java.

This year, I am organizing a Lightning Talk session right after lunch on both days of camp. Although we had to close session submission in the middle of October, there are still plenty of opportunities to give a lightning talk and/or demo at one of my sessions.

You can follow the official updates about camp via this RSS News Feed or by following sv_code_camp on twitter. Those of you that have twitter accounts are encouraged to tag your own tweets about camp with the #svcc hashtag.

The Hackathon4Kids is a new thing we are trying this year on Sunday afternoon. Bess Ho from Silicon Valley Web Builder organized this with the help of several Google employees. It is important that any kids and their parents that would like to participate fill out this separate Eventbrite registration form.

For any adults planning to attend camp, please complete the free camp registration ASAP to help us with our food planning efforts for the weekend. It is not too late for companies to become a camp sponsor or a raffle prize provider. Finally, be sure to stick around for the BBQ on Saturday evening. That should be the largest gathering during the weekend and it is also when we will be giving away the raffle prizes.

That's All Folks!
