This year marked the fifth year of the CodeMash open source developer conference. I now know why it only took a matter of hours for this one to completely sell out. During the three days in Sandusky, OH I attended quite a variety of sessions on topics that I wouldn’t normally spend time on such as Ruby, VIM and F#. It was great to find the atmosphere being upbeat and open minded as well. To top it all off on Thursday evening the waterpark was open for just us conference attendees to enjoy. It was well worth the time and effort of driving through the blizzard of snowfall that arrived in Detroit just prior to leaving on Tuesday afternoon. Good times!
