As a brief inspection of your RSS reader will quickly tell you, it's Code Camp season. Not to be left out of this party, the developers in the Chicago and Milwaukee areas have a great option this year.
The agenda has been published and it's pretty exciting to see so many interesting and useful topics in a single event.
.NET still dominates the schedule but there's a lot of options for developers of virtually all walks of life. Here's a quick summary (we will have 33 sessions but some cover more than one topic)
- .NET: 20 sessions
- Ruby: 6 sessions
- TDD: 6 sessions
- Functional Programming: 3 sessions
- Cloud computing: 3 sessions
- Python: 2 sessions
- Java: 2 sessions
The bad part is that we can't be at all the sessions we'd like — there will be 5 or 6 concurrent talks. Here are some sessions that interest me in particular:
- Haml / Sass / Tenplate
- Firefox Extensions: Making Your Web Application More Accessible
- Guarding your code with Code Contracts
- Rails-like development using ASP.NET
- Ruby Kata and Sparring
Those are only a few of the talks. I'm sure you'll be able to find sessions of your own interest. RSVP below. Hope to see you there.
