The code camp with all the things!
The Twin Cities Code Camp is a FREE, biannual coding conference held in the Twin Cities area. TCCC is chock-full of content from great local and regional speakers across all stacks and styles of software development. It's by Devs for Devs! Be prepared, you will learn a ton!
It follows the guidelines published in the Code Camp manifesto. As this is a community-driven event, we are always looking for people to lead sessions, volunteer to help during the day of the event, etc. If you'd like to participate, or if you'd like to contribute to the event, let us know!
If you use Twitter, you can follow the official TCCC account @tccodecamp. Use the hash tag #tccc14 on Twitter to follow all of the latest updates and chatter. Videos from Code Camp 5 and beyond can be found in the YouTube group. Twin Cities Code Camp also has photos from past events on Flickr.

With Big Data, what was previously invisible is now visible. That has enormous potential. At the same time, it raises important questions about individual privacy. Ramayya Krishnan explores this balance.
Workshop on Big Data + Storage Systems

Background: The Center for Research in Intelligent Storage (CRIS) is working to address many emerging storage systems R&D issues. One of the important subjects today is "Big Data." The majority of Big Data research proposals we see today are talking about visualization, analytics and the application side of big data. We believe it is important to bring big data together with the advancements of storage systems. Therefore, we are organizing a workshop on big data + data storage systems to identify current issues and future challenges.

Next Session: Apr 22nd 2013 (10 weeks long) Workload: 5-7 hours/week
Mathematical Biostatistics Boot Camp
Brian Caffo, John Hopkins University
This class presents the fundamental probability and statistical concepts used in elementary data analysis. It will be taught at an introductory level for students with junior or senior college-level mathematical training including a working knowledge of calculus. A small amount of linear algebra and programming are useful for the class, but not required.
Next Session: Apr 16th 2013 (7 weeks long) Workload: 3-5 hours/week
SOLD OUT! We gave out in excess of 800 seats.
On the coldest day in Minnesota in years people came in from the cold and boy, were they hungry for knowledge (and food -We went through 705 lunches).
“There are some big data meetups centered in the standard conference centers…Las Vegas, San Francisco, New York… but this is unheard of for a local meetup group, I don’t know of another one like it in the country.”
-Dave Fowler, Founder Chart.IO San Francisco, CA
