Congratulating the Code Camp graduates

Last week, David Book and I had the privilege of spending five days with a highly talented group of people that were committed to their personal and professional growth. I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate the graduates of Code Camp Las Vegas:

Niraj Shah
David Van Beveren
Samantha Van Beveren
Nick D'Innocenzo
Emmanuel Simon
Thomas Meigen
Andy Kitts
Jim King
Miguel Madeira Rodrigues
Tim Wolf
Derval O'Neill
Brian Foutty
Ian Ritter
Chris Robbins
Susan Metoxen
Mario Karg
Danny Kessels

The task at hand was daunting - basically a semester's worth of advanced coding in an intense 40 hour classroom week - and their development in that time was nothing short of astounding. Their newly honed skills will be a significant asset to the Buzztouch community.

Once again - Congratulations!

It was an interesting experience and a nice mix of skills and talent and perspectives.

Thank you for the opportunity to learn from a Master and to be facilitated by a Grand Maestro!

Thank you for all your work to make this a reality, Warren. It is a great example of starting with a clear vision, then executing on the many details to make the vision come alive. Buzztouch is blessed to have the most dynamic teacher (and premier coding ninja) in the country at its helm.

Warren,

Thanks for all of your hard work to set up a great place to interact with and learn from David and my fellow code campers. It was an amazing experience. One which I will not soon forget.

@LA - It would be hard to summarize all that we learned in such a limited space.

@LA - I did announce this event in October, which was six months ahead. Sorry you could not put something together to attend, but I'm pretty confident there will be other opportunities.
