I’ll be presenting at this yearâ€™s Utah Spring Code Camp. My session will be about Media Center development with Media Center Markup Language (MCML). Utah is a little out of my way, but I am a big supporter of the Code Camp idea. If you’re in the area, please mark your calendar for this event and attend the Code Camp. There are alot of other interesting sessions, also.
My session abstract: There is a new development language for Windows Vista Media Center development: Media Center Markup Language (MCML). In this one hour session, we will cover a brief overview of Media Center and create, install, and test a simple application in MCML from scratch.

What is a Code Camp? In short, it is a free developer conference. Who is welcome? Anyone!
To get a better understanding, hereâ€™s the Code Camp Manifesto:
By and For the Developer Community
Code Camps are about the developer community at large. They are meant to be a place for developers to come and learn from their peers. Topics are always based on community interest and never determined by anyone other than the community.
Code Camps are always free for attendees.
Community Developed Material
The success of the Code Camps is that they are based on community content. All content that is delivered is original. All presentation content must be provided completely (including code) without any restriction. If you have content you donâ€™t want to share or provide to attendees then the Code Camp is not the place for you.
No Fluff only Code
Code Camps are about showing the code. Refer to rule #1 if you have any questions on this.
The most important element of the Code Camp is always the developer community. All are welcome to attend and speak and do so without expectation of payment or any other compensation other than their participation in the community.
Never occur during work hours
We need to understand that many times people canâ€™t leave work for a day or two to attend training or even seminars. The beauty of the Code Camp is that they always occur on weekends.
