Richmond Code Camp: A Success!

On Saturday, we held the first ever Code Camp here in Richmond.

 

The keynote room was filled to capacity and, thankfully, my jokes were well received. ;)

We had speakers come from as far away as New Jersey and Pennsylvania and attendees from as far away as North Caroline and Tennessee!

 

The event was a success and I would like to echo Andy Leonard's thanks to all those who volunteered, spoke and donated food, books, magazines and more in support of the local developer community.

ECPI provided us with the perfect location for a Code Camp.

MaconIT, for the making up the best Code Camp shirts ever

TekSystems, for the surprise coffee and bagels from Panera Bread

APress, Wrox, and Wiley for all the books.

Last but, certainly not least, Microsoft, for providing support, managing registration, buying lunch for all Code Camp attendees and for picking up the tab for the speakers-and-volunteers-night-before-dinner, and for all the cool swag.

A special thanks has to go out to our Developer Evangelist, Andrew Duthie, for his tireless efforts on our behalf!

Speaking of Andrew, he acted as the “official Richmond Code Camp” photographer and he has posted selected photos from the big day online.

 

A special thanks goes out to the Roanoke Crew, who not only drove down to Richmond for the Code Camp to speak and volunteer, but were instrumental in making the day such a success. 

An extra special thanks goes out to Robin Edwards for keeping me organized as I planned my first ever event.
