Vermont Code Camp 2018

event date

15 Sep 2018


Champlain College, Center for Communication and Create Media Burlington, United States


10th Annual Vermont Code Camp.

We had 250 attendees in 2017.

Vermont Code Camp is a locally created, volunteer run, very low budget event that is free for attendees. Thanks to our sponsors, we provide a continental breakfast and lunch for attendees. We do not offer speaker travel or stipend.  But we do have a great party for our speakers and other volunteers! 

VTCC sessions can be on a large variety of tech content. Take a look at last year's schedule for an idea of the broad topics. 

Important Dates
Monday May 7 through Sunday July 29: CFP Open
Sunday August 5: Speakers notified of selections.
Sunday August 26: Schedule published
Saturday Sept 15: Day of Event

Session Length
Sessions can be 30 or 60 minutes.

Preferred Time of Day
If you have a preference on when to schedule your session, please leave a note in the "Notes to organizer" field. We will provide a preview of the schedule to speakers to make any last adjustments.

Your Submissions are Publicly Visible
You can see the speaker name and session title on the CFP page. We've done that to help avoid overlapping abstracts and reduce unintentional "competition". We have selected the "show username" option in case you prefer not to have your name visible during the CFP. If you have any questions about this, just shoot us an email at

We Can't Cover Travel Expenses
We strongly encourage members of our local community to speak at this event and while we are happy for speakers to take advantage of an excuse to visit Vermont at a beautiful time of year, we do not have budget for speaker travel. We have, in the past, made arrangements for out of town speakers to stay with volunteers. 

Speaker/Volunteer Party
We have a party at the end of the day for all of our volunteers (including speakers). In recent years it's been at Bluebird BBQ (with vegetarian options)
