South Florida CodeCamp 2008 recently sponsored the much codecamp
popular developer gathered CodeCamp.  This event is much like compared to "Tech-Ed for free" as it is community driven by Microsoft technology oriented volunteers and speakers.  The yearly held event took place on February 2, 2008 @ Devry University and it was possible thanks to donations, sponsors, and speakers.

The sessions covered the following topics:

  • Intro to .NET.
  • Microsoft SQL server 2005 and Business Intelligence.
  • .NET 3.5 language enhancements.
  • UX with Silverlight.
  • Data Warehousing.
  • Intro to LINQ in Visual Studio 2008.
  • Building Facebook apps in .NET.


The raffle winner took home a 30GB Microsoft Zune Player.

"We always welcome new visitors at the booth as there are plenty of goodies for everyone" said Carlos Caneja.



This is a great event to attend since there is something to learn wether you are a seasoned asp.NET developer or just looking to  get into development.


The crew is always eager to meet new and existing customers as this is a time where both parties get to exchange feeds in a face to face scenario.

Wayne Lansdowne said "it’s always great to hear what the user experience is. This allows us to come back to home base and talk about the areas where we excel and where we need improvement."

If you didn’t get a chance to attend South Florida’s Codecamp, there is always next year.

–See ya there!
