Vermont Code Camp 11 (2019)

event date

28 Sep 2019


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


11th Annual Vermont Code Camp.

We had over 230 attendees in 2018.

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

  • Friday May 3 CFP Opens
  • Sunday July 21: CFP Closes .  [EXTENDED!]
  • Sunday July 29: Speakers notified of selections
  • Saturday Sept 28: 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
Unfortunately because of the blind submissions, there's now way to display ONLY the sessions without the names of the speakers. We're looking for a way around this.

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

Anonymous Evaluation of Submissions

Even though the submissions are visible on the CFP page the first round of our selection process of the 2019 submissions will be conducted anonymously to avoid bias. In order to help with this initiative we request speakers avoid including biographical information (i.e. name, company, etc.) in the session title, description, or notes to the organizer. Please use the speaker biography field for this information.

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)
