Lou Vega a thump to the brain
Many thanks to all the folks who pulled together to bring us Richmond Code Camp 4!
I drove up from Charleston, SC leaving home at 3AM to make the drive up to Richmond. It was mostly uneventful until I was pulled over by a VA State Trooper just 20 minutes outside of Richmond (more about that in a later blog post).
I actually arrived there shortly after the first sessions began, but just a little too late to help them out by speaking since some of their scheduled speakers weren’t able to make it on short notice. In a small way that turned out to be pretty neat because this is the first time I’ve been to code camp without speaking. I think I still prefer to be involved volunteering, speaking or both…but after the 6+ hour drive I was happy to just relax and enjoy the sessions. After Code Camp I went to stay with my uncle who has a nice place about 20 minutes north of Richmond. My aunt and uncle hooked me up with a nice dinner, place to sleep and then breakfast in the morning before I headed on 95 again back to Charleston.
I ran into Robin Edwards again during Richmond Code Camp and she told me about the Roanoke Valley Code Camp she’ll host early next year – so I’ll be up in VA again for that one.
With Richmond Code Camp 4 complete, I’ve got just 3 more Code Camps in my “4 in 4 Code Camp Tour”:
·         October 13: South Carolina Code Camp 3 – organizing, speaking, volunteering
·         October 20: Charlotte Code Camp – speaking, volunteering
·         October 27: Twin Cities Code Camp – possibly speaking, crashing at Chris’ house (again!).
BTW – SC Code Camp is this Saturday, October 13. If you are in the area (or are a code camp junkie) then come on down. We’ve got a great lineup of speakers and lots of cool stuff to give away (see if you all don’t come down to Code Camp we “have” to keep all this cool stuff for ourselves *grin*) including an Xbox…sweet…too bad I’m not eligible to win it…but most of the rest of you reading this are!
