My Silicon Valley Code Camp Wrapup
By Mark Wilcox - CTO - Oracle Consulting Security-Oracle on Nov 11, 2008
Justin did a nice write-up of Oracle's participation at the recent Silicon Valley Code Camp.
This was my first trip to the conference. I was only able to make it to the Sunday event. I would say that overall it seemed like people had a nice time, met some new friends and learned a few things. To my surprise - there were even a few kids (even though I really don't relate well to human beings under age 8 - yes, I have no kids, only a wife & a dog). Apparently there were a couple of classes aimed at teaching kids to program.
I still remember learning to program myself with BASIC (even before I had a computer) and then LOGO. I can only imagine how cool it is now.
While there was a relatively small turn-out for my topic - I hope to present again next year. Hopefully I'll be able to demonstrate some of the more developer-centric bits we're working on now that I couldn't show this year.
