Code camp

San Diego Code Camp is this weekend. Too late to tell you to go though. Hosted at the UCSD Extension classrooms, this was a fabulous free gathering of geeks. Speakers talked on all ranges of coding. I went to an Introduction to Agile, Managed vs Self-Formed groups, Scrum, and two refactoring sessions. Afterwards, there was a free dinner and band.

I can't make the Sunday sessions. Someone from Microsoft is talking about XNA and game development that would have been very interesting. Next time.'

My take-home tasks include looking up "scaling scrum", reading a book on Refactoring, and trying to figure out how to get a team in San Diego to use scrum. I wish I was coding because then I could suggest that I need a coding partner too.

Next year I should consider giving a talk. Suggestions?
