ComponentOne RussCam Episode 91 - Desert Code Camp Part 2

Russ brings you more from Desert Code Camp! Event organizer and President of INETA North America, Joseph Guadagno and Southeast Valley .NET UG, talks about how he became involved with the code camp. He started organizing Desert Code Camp over 5 ½ years ago and it keeps getting bigger and better every year. In fact, it has grown from 250 once a year to 700-800 twice a year. The venue is Chandler-Gilbert Community College with 12 tracks, 103 sessions And 80 different presenters with 25 volunteers. Short story, this is some undertaking and a lot of work for the incredible community event! He brings us up to date on the INETA happenings, with a new INETA website makeover and marketing push for the INETA Speakers program. Then, Scott Cate talks about his work with Event Day where they send attendees a QR code and when scanned can print an event name label. We chat about a session I saw him present at TechEd on Keyboard shortcuts, and was an inspiration for my Windows 8 Shortcuts Phone app and the many other ones I have including VS shortcuts. Watch to the end to see some great photos from the event. This episode is brought to you by ComponentOne Windows 8 Studios.
