A Developer's Expedition

I just signed up the Code camp. Did you? There are only 400 seats available!

Here are the details:

Our first installment of the 2008 Code Camp series will be held at the DeVry University campus in Fort Washington, PA on Saturday, January 12 from 8:00-5:30. Detailed directions are on the DeVry web site.

  • Lots of code, just say no to slides!
