This year Codecamp turns 10! It all started out in Iași back in 2008 and what we wanted was to bring together local IT professionals and organise a series of events that would lead to the emergence of an IT community. We started off very small in terms of event attendees and partners but as the years went by, we were impressed to see just how big this was becoming and were really happy to acknowledge that there was a growing demand for this kind of community-centered IT events.
This year, we decided to take everything to the next level. Codecamp will take place in Cluj-Napoca, Baia Mare, Bacau, Piatra Neamt, Suceava, Timisoara, Chisinau and, of course Iasi, the place where it all started, and will feature over 8000 participants, 300 speakers, 30 communities and 60 partners.
Since nothing would have been possible without our trusted partners throughout these years, we’re dedicating this article to them. It’s our way of saying “Thank You!”
