Sam Abraham Software Engineer/Architect: Putting Customers First
Sam Abraham (Me) had the great pleasure of attending and participating at the SW FL .Net Code Camp which took place on September 25, 2010 at Florida Gulf Coast University, Estero, FL. 
I spoke at two sessions: “ASP.Net MVC” and “SSIS for C# Developers”. I was pleasantly surprised with the high turnout at the MVC session despite the fact that it was scheduled early on that Saturday (8:45 AM). This highlights the growing interest in ASP.Net MVC and its related suite of tools such as Razor, Web Pages Helpers and WebMatrix, to name a few.
John Dunagan and his volunteer code camp committee did a wonderful job ensuring all aspects and logistics of the event went as planned and that arising issues were immediately tended to.
One notable all-day-long track I attended was for Windows Phone 7 featuring the highly regarded speakers Joe Healy, Henry Lee, Diane Leeper, Jonas Stawski, Kevin Wolf and Nikita Polyakov.
Code camp was yet another good example of what it means to be part of a “Technical Community”. Everyone’s friendliness, openness to share their knowledge and sincere care about other community members was phenomenal.  
In trying to express what I saw, I couldn’t find better words than how John Dunagan put it in a conversation we had after code camp: “We are all one family”, he said.
Look forward to visiting John and the SW FL .Net User Group in the near future.
All the best,
--Sam Abraham
