Silicon Valley Code Camp V6, 2011, is Just 4 Days Away!

  As the primary organizer for Silicon Valley Code Camp, I’m very excited to say things are really going well for this year.  Our attendance looks to be setting yet another record (we are just now passing the 2800 or so we had registered at the start of Code Camp last year and I expect at least 100 people a day to be signing up in the next few days).  We have not yet decided to cut off attendance.  We are taking that one day at a time (but watching the sign ups and plan to attends very closely).  I hate to even consider that but if we have to in order to keep the experience for the attendees great, we will.     We also just added (yesterday) the ability to capture tweets with #svcc in them and filter … Continue Reading

My Interview With DevExpress Regarding Silicon Valley Code Camp

Last week, while at Microsoft’s TechEd 2010, Mehul Harry, Technical Evangalist for Developer Express, interviewed me about our upcoming Silicon Valley Code Camp (of which Dev Express is a platinum sponsor).  There was huge giveaway (for an expensive motorcycle) in the next booth so it was really noisy.  Mehul had the recorder about 6 inches from my nose which made me pretty nervous.  I think I’m moving my head so much because I was trying to get away, but there was not place to go.
