Ottawa IT Camp
This site (Ottawa IT Camp on CodePlex) is a companion site to the Microsoft .NET Ottawa IT Camp event held in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

OttITCamp is a fun filled day of "meat only" presentations. By technical people, for technical people! This event is held at Algonquin College every spring.

Source Code and Presentation Material
The source code and presentation material in this project is specific to the sessions given at the Ottawa IT Camp(Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) and is predominantly a Microsoft/.NET/SQL Server event. Therefore the source code and slide decks are going to be C#/VB.NET/T-SQL in Visual Studio 2008 or 2010 and SQL Server Management Studio solutions/projects. Anyone is welcome to download the material, however to get the most out of this material, it is meant to be absorbed in conjunction with the presentations given at the event.

Please click on this link for instructions on how to get the source code to start looking and playing with.

Source Code for previous years is available in the Downloads section (as a release package). And the current year's material will be available on the day of the event or shortly thereafter in the Source Code section. Shortly after the event, the material will migrate over to the Downloads section and into a release package.


The Code Camp Manifesto
"The original Code Camp was a conglomeration of ideas by many different people across the development community. The idea was/is simple – provide an off hour forum for the development community to speak and share ideas for them to come and enjoy. The results have been astounding. I am happy to report that they are being planned across many different cities." Thom Robbins

A Code Camp is:
By and For the Developer Community
Code Camps are about the developer community at large. 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.

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. If you have content you don’t want to share or provide to attendees then the Code Camp is not the place for you.

No Fluff – only Code
Code Camps are about showing the code. Refer to rule #1 if you have any questions on this.

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.
