CodeCon 2010

CodeCon is coding and camping, just in case you hadn't been to one before. Real tents, no Internet, no phones. I do hire a 2.5kVA generator, so the laptops still work.

This year we are at Wollondilly River Station. We are booked the weekend of 22/23/24 October.

The WRS web site says no generators, but we will be OK, because I asked specifically. There are more remote sites (still on the river) where we will not disturb anyone. The gerenator has to be off by 9PM.


  • Honda EU20i
  • 2.5kVA
  • Quiet: 54 dB
  • Must be off by 9PM
  • Kennards Hire: $186
Friday 22-Oct-2010 noon (or whenever the second person arrives), until about 3PM Sunday 24-Oct-2010.

Who Is It For?

The expected attendees will be coders, usually open source coders.


About $60 each (2×$10 + $generator/n) depending on numbers. Cash.

Please let me know if you are thinking of coming, so I have some idea of numbers. This helps me hire a 240V generator of the appropriate capacity.

What To Bring

What Will Be Provided
