Codemash 2015 - Part 1

I've been to several Codemash conferences and highly recommend them. In this Codemash-Part One blog post, I will share tweets from before and during the first part of Codemash 2015, along with my photos from the entire event. Codemash-Part Two will contain tweets from my last day, and after the event, along with a list of other Codemash blogs. I will also share some of the resources from conference sessions I attended.

My goal is to share some of the flavor of the event and some some of the useful information developed for the conference. There are over 300 tweets/retweets regarding @Codemash. Be sure to take a moment to review them. Some reflect the unique humor that develops when you gather such a large group of creative people together. Other tweets provide links to useful technology resources, and blog posts developed for Codemash 2015.

I enjoy the conference every year --I am writing this blog post as my way of thanking all the many people who volunteer their time and financial support to make it a success.

Here are my "January 7-9, 2015 - Codemash 2015" photos from the three days of Codemash:

Codemash - Wednesday, January 7, 2015

I arrived on Wednesday to check out some of the vendor displays and see some of the NodeBots whose photos I had been seeing on Twitter, lightling talks, and the opening entertainment. Note that Codemash seems to always take place during one of the coldest weeks of the year to go to a waterpark (4° Fahrenheit Wednesday evening)!

Codemash - Thursday, January 8, 2015

Codemash Thursday -- the day starts at 7:00 a.m. (-1° Fahrenheit outside) with breakfast in the huge Kalahari Resort Kilimanjaro Ballroom, and ends as we close the private waterpark party at 1:00 a.m. What a day!

Here is some of the information from the sessions I attended, and some I found on my own during the sessions:
