programming information and sample code that can be used immediately. The event is
free and all slides, manuals and demo code are provided free!

Code Camp NYC will contain two types of 1.5 hour sessions that are being held:
Code-focused presentation – These are presentations that include both power
points and code demos. Given the audience that is attending it is important that a
large amount of the presentation is focused on code and coding related
Chalk Talks – These sessions are designed as a facilitated discussion around a
developer topic. They are presented as a free form facilitated discussion that
leverages the expertise of the presenter and the combined knowledge of the group
