The Edmonton Code Camp 2008 is a one-day developer conference driven by the local developer community. This year, it will be on Saturday, November 29th at:
Grant MacEwan College Building #5, Downtown Campus (map) Edmonton, AB
I attended this event last year and I was impressed with the organization and quality of presentations. This event is completely free and topics are based on community interest. See more details here. Do not miss it, it is highly recommended!
