Who is Code Camp For?

You! If you are (or are aspiring to be) a programmer, designer, entrepreneur, project manager, mentor/advisor, investor, or Leeroy Jenkins, Code Camp will provide you with tremendous opportunities.

To more adequately award effort, teams competing in the 2020 Fall Code Camp will be placed in one of three separate tracks: Novice (junior/high school teams, total noobs), Collegiate (DSC, SUU, etc.) and Professional (teams comprised primarily of full-time professionals). We will meet with each team prior to the start of the competition to help determine which track is most applicable for your team. See the rules for more details.

Why Should I Participate?

Aside from getting a rad Code Camp t-shirt, you’ll have perhaps the best opportunity of the year to bring your skill-set to new heights. There is nothing as exhilarating (and perhaps humbling) as trying to build something meaningful (eg. and something that works) in just a 24-hour window.

Past years’ participants have deepened relationships with colleagues, found jobs or business partners, launched successful businesses, formed new friends, built new networks, and made lasting memories. If this sounds too good to be true, we dare you to come participate and prove us wrong.
