Computing Thoughts
Programming Summer Camp: July 25-29 2011, Crested Butte, Colorado
by Bruce Eckel
May 19, 2011
A new event takes place this July in the mountains of Colorado: we decided to call it "Programming Summer Camp" because we're emphasizing outdoor activities in the morning, and programming activities in the afternoon (when the thunderstorms usually happen).


This is a very casual, leaderless & lectureless gathering, which follows the style of the afternoon "Coding Rodeos" that formed during the Java Posse Roundup -- those were organized by attendees who were interested in exploring a subject with others, but were not necessarily experts in the topic. This takes that idea and extends it for five days.

Currently we have a group for Scala, including Dick Wall, Bill Venners (coauthor of "Programming in Scala"), Dianne Marsh (coathor of "Scala Koans"), James Ward and myself, but we have room for at least two or three other topic groups (we're calling them "campsites").

This event will just cover costs, so there's a low fee of $200 for registration.
