CodeCon 2012

Usually, CodeCon is coding and camping. Real tents, no Internet, no phones, and a quiet generator for the laptops. But not this year.

Due to health issues, CodeCon will not be the usual tents-and-generator exercise this year, we will do that again when I'm in remission again. Instead, I'm holding a rolling codefest at my place on the Central Coast (ten minutes east of Gosford). Come for as many or as few days as you like, hang out for as long as you like.


Noon Fri 5 Oct to evening Sun 7 Oct 2012.

Start time on Friday is about noon, because it is highly likely that I will be receiving blood products in the hospital on the Friday morning.

Who Is It For?

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

While I have quite low energy these days, I'd very much like to see as many of my geek friends as possible over the 3 days.

If you have geek children, they are also welcome to bring their laptop and hack, too.

Please let me know if you are thinking of coming, so I have some idea of numbers.


Coding, talking about coding, scenic bush walks, coding,

whale watching, coding,

avoiding the Honey-Do list, and coding.

We will probably get take-away for meals, or maybe a group booking at a restaurant, depending on what my neutrophils are doing.

Depending on the weather, and the inclination, there are some great spots nearby to take the folding chairs. Well, until laptop batteries run out. One of my favorite places host lots of trees and leaves and even has 3 bars of mobile broadband reception.

There will be a Single Malt Scotch Appreciation mini-conf on the Saturday night, around a fire in the brazier.

Hacking Suggestions

There is a separate page of hacking suggestions.

What will be Provided


Due to a lack of bathroom facilities... and grass... putting up half a dozen tents in my yard is not going to work, and so I encourage folks to book at a local motel or B&B. Search google maps for “motel near Kincumber NSW” or “B&B near Kincumber NSW” for the closest ones.

They tend to like 2-night bookings that time of year.

Getting There

Google says the travel time is 4h11m from Canberra.

Google says the travel time is 1h15m from Sydney CBD.
