xkcdtechsupport

 

Where: The Pheasant Plucker @ 20 Augusta Street (2nd floor)
Date: Wednesday October 16th, 2013
Rough Agenda:

6:30pm – 7:00pm – meetup, grab a drink, talk shop
7:00pm – 9:00pm – series of 5-20 min. talks

 

CoderCamp is an event for local software developers to learn techniques and technologies from one another in a casual setting. There’s a projector setup in the room, and whether you have a scheduled talk or not you’re welcome to step up and talk.

CoderCamp is usually a pretty tough event to find speakers for. Developers don’t tend to jump on opportunities to give talks or lead discussions. CoderCamp is also a little odd in that it’s not a user group that focuses on a specific language.

This month things are looking awesome. In fact, the next few months are looking awesome. We’ve got a diverse array of talks tilted towards the coding side of things:

 

- Nick Groupinets (@NickGoupinets) will talk about what the software architecture term means, what the different terms there are and what the difference are across enterprise / solution / software acrchitectures

- AJ Bovaird (@AJBovaird) will talk about “S.O.L.I.D.ifying your MVC Application” – a demo on refactoring a legacy MVC application into a lean, mean, testable machine.

- Alex Pineda (@alexpineda77) will talk about his 2 month experience working remotely while traveling through Europe

- Andrew Blackbourne (@asseenfromspace) will talk about PhoneGap

- If time permits, I’ll talk about a usability study that was done for iPad apps used to teach introductory computer science concepts at McMaster University

 

Interested in giving a talk? You can show up that evening and we should have time for your talk (and if not at this event, at the next event), or you can e-mail info@softwarehamilton.com and we’ll add you to the list of scheduled talks.

If you could register below so we know how many people are coming we would appreciate it – if enough people are coming then we need to tell the bar to bring in another staff member!
