Join us for Seattle Code Camp 2012

This spring the Seattle, Washington development community is coming together for an outstanding community-based software (un-)conference like no other
Code Camp is a type of community event where developers talk with-and learn from-fellow developers. All are welcome to attend and speak. Code Camps have been wildly successful, and we're going to bring that success to Seattle.
An original Code Camp organizer, Thom Robbins, wrote a six-point manifesto: Code Camps are (1) by and for the developer community; (2) always free; (3) community developed material; (4) no fluff - only code; (5) community ownership; and (6) never occur during working hours.
A full day of talking about code with fellow developers. Sessions will range from informal "chalk talks" to presentations. There will be a mix of presenters, some experienced folks, for some it may be their first opportunity to speak in public. We are expecting to see people from throughout the Pacific Northwest region and beyond.
We don't yet have a list of sessions on the site as we are still collecting sessions from speakers. Interested in speaking please head here. Watch this site for more details and schedule as we firm things up.
The answer is no (or all of the above depending on your perspective). This is a Seattle developer community event, not a Microsoft event or any other company's. Everyone is welcome to present so long as it fits the Code Camp guidelines (must be about code, and isn't a direct advertisement for a product or service).
Don't think about Code Camp in terms of what technological faction it caters to... it's not like other events. Think about it as an event where developers convene and share their knowledge and experience. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate!
Attendance is free, but space is limited so you need to register. We will send occasional updates via the email address you used when you register.
Register, Login and then go to the My Participation page to submit your talk. We are looking for one-hour sessions, with 15 minutes of question and answer. We want to see more code than PowerPoint slides. We want to see your passion.
Never presented before? Don't be shy! Code Camp is for you!
Seattle Code Camp is being organized by a growing list of groups and individuals including Chris Kinsman and Walt Ritscher.
