Austin Code Camp Recap

I spent Saturday with friends, co-workers, Twitter peeps, and assorted geeks at the third annual Austin Code Camp. I’ve been all three years, and I enjoyed this one the most. There was over 200 attendees, which was a great turnout. There was a lot of great sessions. It was also cool that a bunch of people made the drive in from Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Houston.

The sessions I attended:

  • Agile in the Enterprise
  • Coding for Stupid Users (which was really a session on User Experience Design)
  • Taming the Legacy Code Beast
  • Introduction to jQuery
  • Fishbowl talk on TDD & BDD
  • Advanced CSS & JavaScript

Of course, not only was it great to attend the sessions, but getting a chance to meet and converse with lots of cool, smart people in-between sessions and after the camp tends to be even better.

Many of us twittered throughout the day – you can see the entire stream of the day using Summize.

The slides and sample code from the sessions are available on the Austin Code Camp site.

The organizers did a great job – I’m looking forward to next year’s camp.
