Fairfield / Westchester Code Camp 4 (2010) Recap

I’m waaaay overdue for this posting.  But I would be remiss to pass up the opportunity to thank everyone, from speakers, to organizers, to sponsors and attendees, for making this year’s code camp, on November 6th, the biggest and most successful yet.

I’m not going to drone on about the details.  Suffice to say, a lot more lessons were learned.  I’ll update my regular checklist about running a code camp in the near future.  For now, I’ll leave you several video interviews we recorded that day.  We’re also working on editing several audio and video recordings of the actual sessions, so stay tuned for that.

An interview with one of the attendees, Lalit Chhablani, who also happens to be a co-worker of mine.
An interview with one of the organizers, Vik Karumbaiah, who also happens to be a co-worker of mine. Hey, what can I say? I was able to get these guys to participate in these recordings 🙂
An interview of me, by Vik.
An interview of several volunteers, including Allison Junquera, James Simon, and Louis Edouard, and also appearing Leo Junquera and Richard Hale Shaw.
Some banter from the speaker lounge from Rachel Appel, John Zablocki, Steve Bohlen, and John Baird, and also apearing Dane Morgridge and Dan Buskirk.
An interview of Telerik’s Emily Parker. Telerik was a key sponsor for us again this year.
An interview of Telerik’s Philip Japikse, who presented four times, including a repeat performance of his SOLID session.
An interview with Richard Hale Shaw.
An interview of Minuteman Solutions’s Allison Junquera, who also helped sponsor the code camp, and paid for breakfast. Allison is also my co-chair, Leo’s wife.
An interview with Leo Junquera, himself.
Some more interviews and banter with Microsoft’s Rachel Appel and Peter Laudati, as well as Telerik’s Philip Japikse.

Thanks to everyone who made this event possible!

  1. Hi Mark,

    Really pleased to hear that the day was such a success.

    Hopefully, next year, I will catch wind of Fairfield and Westchester Code Camp a little earlier, and we can get some of the DevExpress crew over to see you all.

    Thanks for having us on board despite us being late to the game.

    Wishing you the best,

  2. Thanks, Rachel. I’ll make sure you’ll get an earlier heads-up next year. In the meantime, you can pencil in the first or second Saturday in November for future F/W code camps.
