Austin .NET Code Camp ’08 == Awesome
Yesterday a bunch of .NET geeks descended upon Austin for the ’08 Code Camp and it was a great success. From what I heard, about ~200 folks showed up. We had sessions all day and all of them were meaty, good stuff. I don’t recall seeing one single vendor salesware demo. Every presentation had meat in it (even the vendor ones). There were several patterns/practices talks and we even got to do a fishbowl on TDD/BDD practices.
Please indulge me in a few acknowledgements. Please also forgive me for all the people I’m about to miss and offend. I’d like to especially thank John Teague and Eric Hexter who, from what I understand, organized the whole thing. I’d like to thank all the speakers, especially Ben Scheirman and Jimmy Bogard who both led 4+ sessions EACH! I’d also like to thank the sponsors who helped make it possible and provided lunch and a bunch of snacks and drinks. Lastly but not least, I’d like to thank all the attendees who really made it a great conference and really help energize the atmosphere and inspire everyone to try harder to make the .NET community in central Texas even more lively.
