I’ll be attending CodeMash early next year. Not only that but my AWESOME employer, HMB, is sending a total of 10 people to make sure that we can capitalize on the fantastic content that comes out of CodeMash each year. To further emphasize the role that this conference plays on HMB, HMB has 48 employees. That means that over 20% of our staff is being offered the opportunity to attend at no cost to the attendee.
If you’re interested in attending CodeMash, I recommend that you register early. This conference has a strong tradition of selling out. The speakers at this conference in particular are typically the best of breed for the given technology they are speaking on.
For information more than
CodeMash is a unique event that will educate developers on current practices, methodologies, and technology trends in a variety of platforms and development languages such as Java, .Net, Ruby, Python and PHP.
make sure you visit the CodeMash website.
I can also personally vouch for the PreCompiler even that happens the day prior to the conference. The PreCompiler is that part of a conference that everyone says “would have been cool if they had done …” Basically, some excellent teachers, subject matter experts, and technologists have volunteered their time to *show* you how they do best practices or develop software in a particular language/technology. There will be hands on sessions on TDD/BDD, Ruby, Coaching, the Software Craftsmanship, and a whole lot of other topics. I like to think of these sessions as “The best showing how they do what they do best” I recommend trying it out.
CodeMash is held at the Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, OH on Jan 13-15.
