The Northwest Arkansas CodeCamp is a yearly regional developer and technology focused event that is focused on three things Connecting, Learning and Teaching.
Connect with your peers, knowing who know is almost as important as knowing. Attending local and regional conferences are a great way to interact and expand you circle of influence.
Learn, by attending topical sessions presented by national and local speakers can help you stay up to date on the mountain of new topics coming out each year.
Teach what you know, share your experiences with others. Teaching and presenting is also an awesome way to learn. By putting yourself out there and letting others hear what you have learned you gain incredible feedback and learn other approaches to the problem.
