Code Camp Extravaganza


We’re proud to be sponsoring what promises to be the biggest code camp ever – more than 14 hours of sessions across three streams at Code Camp Auckland 2009 on Sunday 13 September.

For the non geeks out there code camps are non-profit, and organised by members of the local developer community. It’s a great way to take part in some free sessions. In Auckland we’ll be looking at the state-of-the-art in .NET development, SQL Server and developer security.

We’ve got a great line-up of speakers including Michael Howard, author of  the titles Writing Secure Code and 24 Deadly Sins of Software Security. He’ll give a workshop for developers, architects and team leads on Threat Modelling and the Secure Development Lifecycle. This will be followed by a session on how to write secure .NET code.

Presenters that are offering their time include Greg Low, Nicholas Dritsas and Auckland’s Alex Henderson of Architecture Chat fame.

So if you’re interested sign up now!
