This is the email that goes out to the 900 people that will be Attending Silicon Valley Code Camp this Saturday and Sunday.
Most important. BRING YOUR ID. PayPal security will check it and match to your SVCC Badge at the door, and without you can not get in. Our records show that you are registered for at least one day of Code Camp.
Silicon Valley Code Camp hosted by PayPal, starts this Saturday! Badge pickup starts at 8:15AM. After that join us for  coffee, networking with friends, and time with our sponsors. Our first session is 9:30AM.
Douglas Crockford will again be kicking off this year talking about his new book, How JavaScript Works.  Also in the first time slot, Chris Richardson will be talking about Microservices, and Ron Lichty will be kicking off the Management Track with session having an agile spin to it.
A first this year is we have 4 speaker panels. A Web Panel with Douglas Crockford, Steve Souders and Mike North, a Security Vendor Panel, hosted by David Spark, a Microservices Panel and a Management Panel.
Parking is free for all Code Camp attendees and can be found all around PayPal Town Hall.  Basically, it's the employee parking for thousands and it's a weekend so it is plentiful for us.
We will have printed copies of the schedule, but you can help us out by printing and bringing the following PDF files, they contain the session schedules for both Saturday & Sunday. Or if you love trees, skip the printing and use our new mobile app ( The new mobile app let's you view sessions by time, room and alphabetically. 
All the same information is available on the full web site at and is posted on our RSS feed and news page.  
Please remember to provide feedback after each session by visiting the Sessions Page on the web site and choosing Session Evaluation on the right of each session description.  Also, under the About-My Evals you can easily do all session evals from one place for all your sessions.
See you Very Soon!
