Not too long ago Iowan developers had to travel to other states to get to a code camp. Now, a few short years later, Iowa, on November 7th, is having it's fourth Iowa Code Camp in Des Moines. I'm writing today to officially announce that we are now accepting speaker submissions for the event. I encourage you to think about what excites you about .NET and software development and how you can impact software developers in the Midwest with your topic. Code camp attendees are typically talented developers who demonstrate their dedication to their craft by coming to a learning event on a weekend. High quality content, such as that topic that just popped into your head or that topic you've been waiting to speak on, are the kinds of sessions our attendees are looking for.
To submit a session or three, simply go to http://iowacodecamp.com/Speakers.aspx and follow the instructions there.
The deadline to submit is September 23
A few quick notes:
- Speaker and session selection is done by the Iowa Code Camp leadership. We'll accept as many sessions as we can hold and will work to balance between advanced and beginner level topics
- You may (and are encouraged) to submit more than one abstract
Special note to new speakers or people interested in speaking at a code camp for the first time:
Code camps are a great way to enter the world of speaking and "dip your toe in the water". If you've thought about speaking before and have a topic you're knowledgeable about, consider taking the next step and submitting a session. Iowa Code Camp welcomes new speakers and works hard to provide a very friendly environment to present for the first-time presenter.
