UW Code Camp is a success!

Code Camp Joyful Times

Thank you to all who attended and aided theĀ amazing success of the inaugural UW Code Camp. I hope everyone was as excited to attend as we were to host. I also hope everyone found Code Camp to be a great venue for learning and future collaboration. There were 150 more people than we initially estimated (a total of 200 attendees!), and the response afterwards was fantastic.
