On April 9th 2016, we held Code Camp Wellington 2016.
It was a stunning success.
By the numbers: Planning started in November 2015 when three developers hatched a plan. One was lured overseas but two more stepped into his place. Coordination involved an uncountable number of emails and fifteen working lunches. We sold 350 tickets and were sold out four days in advance. On the day, nearly 200 delegates took in 26 sessions presented by 30 speakers from as far away as Auckland and Christchurch. Six sponsors - Microsoft, Trade Me, Xero, Raygun, Mojo and ShowGizmo - made the day possible, providing food, coffee, locations and an app.
Feedback since the event has been overwhelmingly positive, with many asking if Code Camp Wellington will be back in 2017.
Well, mark the date in your diaries - Code Camp Wellington 2017 is scheduled for Saturday April 22nd.
