You know, it’s a good time to head to a camp, don’t you think? I mean, sure, you may have just spent a few days at WebVisions. But it’s still a good time to attend a camp. Especially one as cool as Portland Code Camp and SQL Saturday, who have combined forces for one gigantic Dev Saturday.
You won’t want to miss it. So clear your Saturday schedule and head on over to the University of Portland to join more than 1,000 other lovers of code for a day full of code geeking goodness.
Portland Code Camp and SQL Saturday are combining and coordinating efforts to bring 700–800 regional software development professionals together for the opportunity to immerse themselves in seminars, presentations, group exploration, and networking. Participants will be able to engage in their preferred technology, as well as to sample other options, with a focus on extending information exchange and enhancing the cross pollination of ideas. Mark your calendar! Portland Code Camp and SQL Saturday 2010 are scheduled for May 22, 2010, at the University of Portland campus. The event is scheduled from 8:00 AM until 10:00 PM. The University of Portland facility offers a great venue — including large fully equipped and air-conditioned meeting rooms, excellent parking, access to public transportation, and easy bike commuting. A few deep dive sessions (2.5 hour) will be scheduled for 7:00 PM, after evening snacks and refreshments.
Just how big is Portland Code Camp and SQL Saturday?
“[This effort is] perhaps the largest tech gatherings ever in Portland that has not be organized by a for-profit company or media/events agency,” said Mark Lawler, an advisor to the project. “Both in content, quality, and # of registered attendees this will be a truly great event. I applaud your efforts as well as those by the Mayor and his Economic Development Office as well as the SAO. This is a true partnership that I think bodes very well for the Portland and Oregon Software Industry.”
Sound interesting? Did I mention that the event is completely free? Oh see. Now you’re paying attention.
So take a few minutes to register ahead of time and then head on over to Portland Code Camp and SQL Saturday.
