Atlanta Code Camp Registration

Attendee registration is now open for the 2014 Atlanta Code Camp: https://atlcc2014.eventbrite.com


Code Camp is your opportunity to join other like-minded developers from Atlanta and the greater southeast region for a full day of training on a range of modern technologies. It is an annual volunteer-driven community event, and attracts a wide range of experts on many topics including Windows, .NET, web development, Azure, mobile, design, and many others. The Atlanta Code Camp is always on a Saturday, so you don’t need to take a day off from work to attend.


This year’s event is being held on Saturday, October 11th, at Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta GA. We are collecting a small fee ($10), which mostly covers the cost of lunch (which is provided).


Register today, because space is limited and tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis! Once we sell out we can’t let anyone else through the door (due to safety rules at our venue)!


Interested in presenting one or more talks at this year’s event?

We are still accepting submissions. Please submit a topic for consideration using the form found here: http://www.atlantacodecamp.com/2014/CallForSpeakers


Are you (or your company) interested in becoming a sponsor for Code Camp?

We are still seeking additional sponsors! Sponsorship is a great way to get your company name in front of hundreds of motivated software engineers. If you or your company would like to sponsor this year’s event, then please visit our sponsorship page here: http://www.atlantacodecamp.com/2014/Sponsoring

AngularJS and Benefits to the Development Team

A few days ago, I found myself in the position of talking with a team about the benefits we’ve seen using AngularJS in developing web applications.

Dependency Injection Explained via JavaScript

Angular is no exception. There are many…
