The event will be hosted by the Toronto SharePoint User Group with a supporting cast of many fantastic volunteers and guest speakers.

There are 3 tracks: Developer, Administrator, and Champion/Architect. There will be 15-18 presentations total in 3 to 5 theatres. The space should comfortably accomodate 200 to 300 attendees. We’ll follow the CodeCamp manifesto: free, volunteer-run, brand-agnostic, less talk, more rock.
