Boston Code Camp – Call for Speakers

Boston Code CampIt’s got a new name and new digs, but it’s the same tremendous event and experience!  Yes, New England Boston Code Camp is now open for business!

If you’re unfamiliar with the event, it’s a day of technical presentations and networking held by the community for the community completely free of charge.  This area gave birth to the concept over eight years ago, and twice a year 250 or more area technologists have gathered to take advantage of the knowledge transfer in an open format and informal setting.

With this, the 18th edition, the event will take root at the New England Research & Development (NERD) Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on Saturday, October 20th, 2012.

Session Submission is Open!

At this point general registration is not yet open, but the organizers are looking for speakers to present on whatever technology areas they may be passionate about.  Whether you’re a Distinguished Toastmaster or your last time on stage was as a rock in the 3rd grade play, there’s a place for you (well, as long as you’ve worked on the rock act a bit since then).

The sessions page has a host of topic areas to give you some ideas, but it’s far from an exhaustive list, so figure out where you can contribute your expertise and enthusiasm, and submit an abstract between now and October 12th. 

 

To do so…

Creating an account…start by creating a site account via the Presenters sidebar. Your account will be tied to a Windows Live ID, Google or Yahoo identity, so you don’t have yet another username and password to remember!

Once you’re logged in you’ll see a page like the following asking for name and e-mail and containing a Captcha challenge. Depending on what identity provider you used – Google, Live ID, or Yahoo – some of this information may or may not be filled in.  Go ahead and complete the form and submit.

Site registration page

 

After you’ve registered, you’ll notice the sidebar changes, and you can now create your account profile.

Creating site profilePresenter profile

With your profile complete, you can submit one or multiple sessions.

Submitting a sessionSession submission form

After you’ve entered your session details, you can pick from a number of tags (or create your own) to categorize your content and help other prospective presenters and attendees easily discover your session.

Tagging your session

Now that your session submission is complete, it appears on the Sessions page for all prospective attendees to view.

Note that a submission does not guarantee you’ll be presenting. The event organizers’ goal is to include a diverse selection of presenters and topics; therefore, the actual slate of sessions and speakers will not be announced until after the submission period closes on October 12th. Look for the list to be published by the of the day on October 15th.

Session listing

Pulling an event of this scale together is not a trivial effort, so thanks go to the organizers including Bob Goodearl, Patrick Hynds, Chris Pels, and John Zablocki for their contribution to the local developer community.

And a special shout out to Bob for pulling together the fantastic new web site, built with ASP.NET MVC and Entity Framework and hosted on Windows Azure. I think that’s a session-worthy topic right there!
