I’ve been to all the Code Camps and SQL Code Camp except one (I missed the very first SQL one) and heartily recommend them. I’ve given my general views on Code Camp in the past, and my opinion is unchanged – these are must-attend events for developers from anywhere in Australia. The organisers always do a fantastic job, and distinguished overseas speakers are often on the bill.
Details of the schedule and speakers will start appearing closer to the event, but mark it in your diaries now.
Obviously it is focused on SQL Server and thus won’t apply to everyone, but if you develop systems that store data in SQL Server there is plenty to be gained by understanding the capabilities of the database engine, even if you aren’t directly doing the SQL development.
And with SQL Server 2008 about to be released, this Code Camp is going to be highlighting a lot of released, use-it-now functionality – rather than stuff that is coming some time in the future…
