Software developers, user groups convene at WSU Vancouver

VANCOUVER – The weekend of May 19 – 20, professionals involved in the writing of computer code will attend an annual community event at Washington State University Vancouver, all about software developers and the code they create.

Portland Code Camp v3.0, a place for software developers to come and learn from their peers, is about the developer community at large. The content is community-driven, original and is by volunteers from the development community who wish to share their unique knowledge and experience. All presentation content is provided, including code, without any restrictions for use.

Developers are encouraged to attend regardless of their technological orientation or level of experience — from hobbyist to enterprise development, from Java to .NET to Open Source Software. The list of contributing presenters is growing daily, and currently includes Microsoft, Corillian Corporation, Portland Area .NET User Group, Washington State University, Software Association of Oregon SIG and many others.

Attendance at Portland Code Camp v3.0 is free of charge, but space is limited. Register online at

Developers from the community who wish to present may submit their ideas for session topics online at Prospective presenters should visit the sessions’ list,, to see whether their topic is already being covered.

Code Camp joined forces this year with the Software Association of Oregon. The partnership will help grow the event by extending out into more software communities over a greater region.
