  • Forums ⇒ will be there soon!!
  • Skype


  • Participation in any of previous code camps on .NET

Can I prepare to Code Camp ?

Yes. During code camp week we will brainstorm a software idea, design it and code it. Getting good ideas might sometimes be hard and thinking about different ideas before code camp makes it faster to get into coding part.

I have an exam in Code Camp week ?

You are free to go exam, but code camp is intensive course and idea is to focus on coding during the week, so it is recommended you prepare to exam before the code camp week.
