This Saturday, October 22, 2011, is the day for Columbus Code Camp. The event is hosted at Tech Columbus and will feature a full day of code centric presentations. The event is sponsored by a number of large tech corporations, which means that it is totally free to attend.
As a working developer I greatly respect their core values:
- by and for the developer community
- always free
- community-developed material
- no fluff – only code
- never occurs during working hours
The schedule is packed with interesting talks. I’ve seen the talk Your database, exposed: HTSQL presented before (at Ohio Linux Fest) and it was really great. HTSQL is a cool python utility that you point at a database, and it serves up a really nice RESTful HTML (and other format) interface to it.
Being a mobile app developer, I also look forward to attending Mobilizing your HTML5 app with PhoneGap and seeing what PhoneGap can do. I’ve read a fair amount of background information on PhoneGap and have read some of the docs, but nothing beats seeing a working example take shape.
The other talks literally all sound awesome, and I’m excited to see them. Luckily the event is scheduled all day so I rarely have to choose between multiple talks I *really* want to see.
Don’t miss Columbus Code Camp this year!
