Raleigh Code Camp 2009 – 9/19/09

If you are within driving distance of Raleigh, North Carolina you should really take the time to come to the code camp this Saturday, September 19th, 2009. There will be some excellent sessions like:

  • Developing WPF Applications with Prism
  • Delegates, Lambdas, and Expressions (Oh My!)


Besides all of those sessions (plus at least one more that hasn’t been announced), there are also giveaways.  Who doesn’t love free stuff?

So there are plenty of opportunities to learn new things and to see if there is something you would like to spend more time doing.

Also, I may devote some of the time of my talk on the new Zune HD assuming someone has one at the code camp. Mine won’t arrive until next week it seems.

The event is free and there are plenty of things to learn, so don’t let this opportunity pass you by – get to Raleigh this Saturday.

When: Saturday September 19, 2009 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Where: ECPI - 4101 Doie Cope Rd Raleigh, NC 27613 [Bing it!]
How much? $0 – as in free, nada, zip, zilch, zero.



And as a heads up … on October 10th, Charlotte, NC will be having a Mega Code Camp. I’ll put up a post about it as the date draws closer, but mark your calendars now for that event. I hear there will be a lot of labs to really get hands on with  the sessions.

Happy Learning!
