Portland Code Camp / SQL Saturday 2010Silver Sponsor
Description (from Portland Code Camp homepage)
On the weekend of May 22, 2010, the Portland Development community is coming together in a way never experienced before.
Portland Code Camp and SQL Saturday are combining and coordinating efforts to bring 700–800 regional software development professionals together for the opportunity to immerse themselves in seminars, presentations, group exploration, and networking. Participants will be able to engage in their preferred technology, as well as to sample other options, with a focus on extending information exchange and enhancing the cross pollination of ideas. Mark your calendar! Portland Code Camp and SQL Saturday 2010 are scheduled for May 22, 2010, at the University of Portland campus. The event is scheduled from 8:00 AM until 10:00 PM. The University of Portland facility offers a great venue — including large fully equipped and air-conditioned meeting rooms, excellent parking, access to public transportation, and easy bike commuting. A few deep dive sessions (2.5 hour) will be scheduled for 7:00 PM, after evening snacks and refreshments.
This year, Portland Code Camp is encouraging presentations in the areas of Mobile, Social, Cloud, and Gaming. Of course, other informative topics will be considered. A hallmark of Code Camp is that we encourage presenters to keep their presentations within the realm of code; a few sessions may have such informative value that they will be permitted without code.
Portland SQLSaturday is encouraging presentations related to interoperability of any of the SQL platforms, including T-SQL (SQL Server), PL/SQL, PostgreSQL, and MySQL. Abstracts for platform specific sessions are also encouraged.
Admission to this event is free, all costs are covered by donations and sponsorships. Please register soon as seating is limited — and tell you friends and colleagues about the event.
