Well, the photographic evidence of Code Camp Oz 2006 has started rolling in. This set of photos is from Roseanne Stamell who looks after the MVP program (and the MVPs) here in Australia. Thanks for sending them in Rose!
The photo below was from a “how to start a user group” session that was co-hosted by Greg Low (MVP/RD) and Charles Sterling (Microsoft). Both very qualified to talk about this kind of stuff.
This next photo is from the SOHO security session that Rocky Heckman (Security MVP). I think this session was ran before the session that Rocky ran in the main hall where I think he managed to terrify some of the attendees.
I think this photo is showing the attendees walking up to the coffee/tea room in the break. I can even spy Irfan Altas there (red top, white pants, grey jacket) from CSU who looked after us during the event.
The campus creates a great atmosphere for Code Camp, and the chalk on the pathways letting people know where to go was a really nice touch.
Here is a picture of Nick Randolph, Dan Green, Martin Granell and Troy Magennis. All four of these guys are MVPs and were presenting at the conference.
This is a picture of myself, Angus Logan and Bill Chesnut. I think that this was just after Angus’ session before he had to jump on a plane back to Sydney.
Here are some of the non-developer MVPs that made it to the event. These guys put on sessions around their technology areas. Names left to right are John, Sandi, Steve and Judy.
Unfortunately we didn’t have the MVP sessions up on the main web site so the whiteboards around the venue served as a quick area to post up information.
This is the main hall at Code Camp. I can spy Daniel sitting there in the front row. You can tell you are at a geek event when powerboards mysteriously appear underneath chairs to power the notebooks (I’d estimate that we had at least 50% notebook coverage).
I’m not sure who this guy is, I was too scared to introduce myself lest he stab me with his sabre for trying to steal his sunken treasure. In all seriousness though, this bird was amazingly well behaved, it just sat their on his shoulder for the whole event.
More ad-hoc promotion for the MVP sessions. This was on the door to the building with the break-out rooms.
A snap from inside Judy’s Outlook session. Judy really knows how to make Outlook work for you as a productivity enhancement.
Finally – here is Nick and Troy doing a deep dive into the features of LINQ from a C# and VB.NET perspective.
Thanks for the pictures Rose!
