Code Camp

Code Camp!! A Code Camp is bit of a new word for the Sri Lankan tech community. But as the Sri Lankan .Net Forum we are proud to announce the 1st Code Camp held in Sri Lanka. It was on 6th August 2009 at Excel World.

The event went very well, there were 7 tables hosted by MVPs and techies from the .Net community. Just to name them Joy Pradeep - SharePoint, Jinath Premarathne – ASP.Net, Prabath Fonseka – Patterns and Practices, Dinesh Asanka – MS SQL, Chanaka Gamage – Windows Workflow Foundation, Chandana Athauda - Azure and Uditha Bandara – Windows Presentation Foundation.

5th Anniversary of the .Net Forum Sri Lanka

I know I’m late on the below post and the one to come next. But it’s better to be late than never.

24th July 2009 was a remarkable day for the Sri Lankan .net forum community. It was the fifth anniversary of the .Net forum. It started with a nice “a look back” video from Wellington. First session on “What’s new in Visual Studio 2010” was carried by Joy. “What’s new in .Net Framework 4.0”, the second session was conducted by me. Third session “MVC” was hosted by Fikri.

It was nice to see the auditorium on 3rd floor was filled with the members of the forum. This wasn’t an end of a journey but another promising step towards a long way ahead and a look back of the successful journey we have come.

Thanks Wela for the beautiful pic.
