The Code Camp Manifesto
Originated by Thom Robbins, NED Community Developer Evangelist
The original code camp was a conglomeration of ideas by many different people across
the development community. The idea was simple-provide an off-hours forum for the
development community to speak and share ideas for them to come and enjoy. The results
continue to astound.
What is a Code Camp?
The answer is actually simple. In order to qualify as an official Code Camp, follow
these simple protocols:
- By and For the Developer Community
Code Camps are about the local developer community. They are meant to be a place
for developers to come and learn from their peers. Topics are always based on community
interest and never determined by anyone other than the community.
- Always Free
Code Camps are always free for attendees.
- Community Developed Material
The success of the Code Camps is that they are based on community content. All content
that is delivered is original. All presentation content must be provided completely
(including code) without any restriction.
- No Fluff – only Code
Code Camps are about showing the code. Refer to rule #1 if you have any questions
- Community Ownership
The most important element of the Code Camp is always the developer community. All
are welcome to attend and speak and do so without expectation of payment or any
other compensation other than their participation in the community.
- Never occur during work hours
Code camp recognizes that many times people can’t leave work for a day or two to
attend training or even seminars. The beauty of the Code Camp is that they always
occur on weekends.
