CodeMash 2014: Recap

13 January 2014

CodeMash v2.0.1.4 or 2014 is over and what great conference it was. DevExpress was happy to attend and be an “Adamantinum” level sponsor.

Amanda, Seth, Mark, and myself had a great time here meeting the devs, speakers, and even the families that come along to the Kalahari Resort and water park.

After we survived the winter weather earlier in the week, we had 3 great days  here. First day was setup. The next two days is when the conference officially started.

On day 1, we saw a surge of people at our booth. We met a ton of developers that use so many technologies. Everything from .NET, Ruby, Java, JavaScript, NodeJS, and more. The keynote speaker was Ann Pendleton-Jullian, a professor and TED speaker. She delivered a great TED-style talk in front over 1,000 attendees.

The day ended with the attendee party. And finally at 10pm, as is custom at CodeMash, they opened the water park exclusively for CodeMash attendees and their families.

On day 2, Seth delivered his second talk. I attended some great sessions myself. We met more dev folks, many who use DevExpress currently that stopped by to say how they loved DevExpress (thank you btw!). At lunch, Amanda and Seth got up on the big stage to raffle off a universal license. While up there, they attempted to start a “We want Bacon!” chant. Fun times. :)

As CodeMash is over, all four us agree that this is a fun conference for developers. The atmosphere is great and people very friendly. This is the 8th year anniversary for CodeMash and DevExpress is proud to have been here for the last 3 years.
