Silicon Valley Code Camp is happening this weekend. I missed last year while away on personal family matters. I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised by how popular it has become. Compared to two years ago when we started the event, this year has more than twice as many sessions and almost twice as many registrants. This is due to the great team who is organizing and promoting Code Camp. Peter Kellner, Michael Van Riper, Kevin Nilson, Bess Ho, Kim Greenlee, Fletcher Johnson, Kenny Spade, and Anand Iyer. Thanks to them for putting in hours and hours of volunteer time, we all can come, learn and network for free, and eat too. Note that there is a little publicized Saturday night barbecue planned for after the sessions are over. So make sure to put that on our calender. I will be there both days. If you see me, please say hello. I have just come back and would love to reconnect. I will also be giving a talk on Regular Expressions. If you ever wondered what those hieroglyphics where all about this is your opportunity to find out.
