Wow, what a great Code Camp. This past weekend we held the first Chicago Code Camp in northern Chicago. I think we had over 200 people show up, which is not too bad given it was our first event. We had 32 session ranging from .Net to TDD to Ruby and beyond.
I personally sat though 2 different sessions.
1) Aaron Erickson – Code that rights codes: This was a great session to which showed exactly how expression trees did and how they could be utilized in your application
2) Micah Martin -- Ruby Kata: This session was great, but a bit different. Micah’s goal was not to show too much code, but rather talk about how you need to practice or perform Kata’s in order to grow your skill. After about 30-45 minutes of conversation Micah sat down and created an application in front of the group and did so with the understanding that we were going to grade him on the skill/technique of the code.
I would like to personally thank Tim, Scott and Sergio for their hard work to help make this great event come to life. I would also like to thank everyone that showed up to help us run the event as well as the people who took the time out of their Saturday to attend the event. And last, but not least we need to thank the sponsors which helped make this possible.
See everyone at the next one.
Till next time,
