Atlanta Code Camp–Call for Speakers

Once again the local developer community in Atlanta is heating up with activity with the upcoming Atlanta Code Camp. I’m privileged to be part of the group putting together this huge event, and now we finally have a date (August 24) and a location (Southern Poly) firmed up.

Code camps are a great opportunity for developers to learn from and share with each other. It’s basically a free event, but what you’ll learn will be (hopefully) quite valuable to your career and personal development.

But to have a free learning event, we first need people willing to share their knowledge. That’s where you come in! We want to hear from seasoned presenters, as well as folks new to the presentation world.

I did presentations for over 8 years during my career at Microsoft, and the first ones really were the toughest to do. But after a while it got much easier. You’ll find the audience at code camp is pretty forgiving of nervousness and the newbie speaker. As long as you have an interesting topic you’re passionate about, put a reasonable amount of work into your material, and can think on your feet should your talk not go exactly as planned (which will most likely happen), you’ll do great!

So click on over to the speaker submission page and tell us what you’d like to talk about! Your fellow speakers are just as eager to get to know you as you are to meet them. Spread the word to your friends and colleagues, too.
