CoderFaire Atlanta '13 conference and hackathon

Hi everyone!

CBQ mentioned that it would be OK to post about this event to your list. Thanks for your support!

I'm the lead organizer of the AtlantaPHP User Group and I'm excited to announce a great developer event that's coming up in Atlanta, put on by friends from Nashville. Kevin Roberts and I are helping organize and promote it locally. The idea behind CoderFaire Atlanta '13 is to host an affordable, hyper-local, cross-technology conference and hackathon. CFA13 will showcase Atlanta's deep tech talent pool across all web-based technologies (PHP, Ruby, JavaScript, MySQL, mobile, you name it). The focus is on Atlanta developers, so we want local talent presenting.

Kevin and I attended the CoderFaire 2012 event in Nashville last August and had a blast. That event had about 180 attendees, but we expect CFA13 to be bigger and better. The Call for Papers is open, so please check out all the details and submit a proposal!

Details are at http://atlanta.coderf...­ and you can follow http://twitter.com/co...­ as well.

Please help spread the word and encourage others to attend. We hope to see you at CoderFaire Atlanta '13!

Chris, Kevin, and the CFA13 organizers

===========================

CoderFaire Atlanta is a two day event just for Atlanta web developers. Join us and spend two days connecting with local developers, learning new stuff, and creating things.

Regardless of your chosen technology, we will have sessions to spark your creativity and teach you something new. You will hear about new technologies, and learn new techniques as you listen to local speakers talk about how they are creating cool things here in Atlanta.

When you find you need a break, kick back in the lab and connect with a CoderFaire Atlanta Lab Partner or other attendees. We’ll have drinks and coffee aplenty to lubricate the conversations.

One ticket gives you access to all the sessions as well as the CodeFaire Lab. Lunch will be provided for all attendees; and every attendee will go home with that most coveted of all possessions, a conference T-Shirt.

Wait though, we aren’t done!

Day 1 is all about inspiration. Day 2 however, is all about application. We want you to channel all of your inspiration into building something great. Build a better mousetrap, a clever hack, or that project that has been sitting on your whiteboard for a while. Don’t lose the momentum from Day 1! Come back and build something awesome. We’ll even have a contest with prizes awarded by a panel of judges in categories like:

* Most audacious idea

* Best UI effort by a developer

* Cleverest hack

The competition will be friendly and the prizes will be fun. The knowledge you gain and the connections you make are the real prizes; in that category, everyone wins.

When: April 20th-21th, 2013

How Much: $50

Where: The Loudermilk Center
