Wrapping Our First Silicon Valley Code Campfire (Managing Programmers)
Our first event came in just over 2 hours. We feel like it went well while at the same time, we learned a lot that will make things better next time. I managed the video controls, Tammy Baker moderated the Q&A's, Joy Tani was on standby in case our internet connection went down, and of course Ron Lichty and Mickey Mantle our awesome speakers presenting on "Managing Programmers".

Our 13th Annual Silicon Valley Code Camp Wrapped! Pictures Here
Having now wrapped 13 Silicon Valley Code Camps, words can't express my grattitude to our speakers, our volunteers, our sponsors, our host (PayPal) and of course all of our attendees for being part of all those events.

Thank you so much for being part of that.
