Here is something else that started in Florida (doesn’t everything?), a series of events along the lines of Code Camp and SQLSaturday for IT professionals called IT Pro Camps. It’s a group that has been way under served and I hope this will be the start of changing that. There is one coming up in Orlando on January 21, 2012, and the call for speakers closes on December 5th. I’m planning to attend, and hopefully will have a presentation selected.
It will be interesting to see if grows. It’s a slightly different approach from SQLSaturday, using WordPress for the core site and event sites, but using EventBrite for registration. Nice hybrid.
