Developers - don't miss out on CodeMash on Jan 13-15 - Register before rooms run out

What Is CodeMash?

CodeMash is a unique event that will educate developers on current practices, methodologies and technology trends in variety of platforms and development languages such as Java, .NET, Ruby and PHP. Held January 13-15, 2010, at the lush Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio, attendees will be able to attend a world-class technical conference amid Ohio's largest indoor waterpark. Nobody will frown if you show up in shorts, sandals, and your loudest t-shirt. You might even win a prize for doing so.

What Will Be Presented?

Attendees will be treated to an impressive set of keynote addresses from industry luminaries. CodeMash 2009 had keynotes from Mary Poppendieck, Eric Meyer, and Mads Torgersen. Rest assured, CodeMash v. will have the same, or better, level of content!

More than 45 sessions will be held, spread across the following tracks:
  • Architecture: SOA, W3C Standards, WS* Implementations, Interoperability and all things 30,000 foot or higher.
  • Desktop Development: Standalone Applications, Fat/Smart Client, Client/Server and all things running local on Windows, Mac or your favorite Linux distribution.
  • Web Development: Web services, Ajax, frameworks, and all things related to the browser.
  • Methodologies: Anything pertinent to how modern development methodologies help build software faster, cheaper, and with less grief.
  • Mobility: All things mobile: platforms, devices, content distribution, social networking, community building, and anything else used in conjunction with those devices which have little screens.
  • Languages: What's new and cool in languages such as C#, Java, PHP, Python, PHP, Ruby? Of course there are other languages which we've omitted from this list for reasons of space but don't mean to offend their feelings.

Where is CodeMash?

CodeMash is held at the wonderful Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio. Yes, Sandusky. Ohio. In the middle of winter. The Kalahari has the Midwest's biggest indoor water park and a world-class conference venue.

How do I get to CodeMash?

You can walk, take a dogsled, or ride your favorite yak, but frankly we recommend driving. You can find directions to the Kalahari on their site. If you need to fly into the region, Cleveland's airport is conveinient. You can use Tom's Limo service for a shuttle, or you can coordinate a carpool on the CodeMash Google Group.

Where do I Stay While at CodeMash, and How Much Does It Cost?

You can stay wherever you like for CodeMash, but the Kalahari Resort has offered up some tremendous rates for attendees. You can read the specifics at the CodeMash Google Group discussion page.
