Hello developers across the northeast. Here's the latest news for our corner of the country.

As I write this, Code Camp 9 hasn't happened yet, but I want to thank everyone who volunteered to help make Code Camp what I'm sure was a great event. In particular, I want to thank our many speakers who shared expertise and the contributing companies who donated giveaways to support the event.

If you missed Code Camp 9 and live in the Albany, NY area, you can attend the Tech Valley Code Camp on April 19.
