Hi all,

We are starting to organise another code retreat session
(http://coderetreat.com/) that will take place on December the 3rd,
and we are looking for sponsors.

The one we run back in mid September was great fun and people learned
a lot (or so they said... I certainly did!).

The session on the 3rd will be at @amworks again but we are a bit
short of funding right now. The event is free but it's a full day of
coding and we basically need to feed people and keep the caffeine
levels high.
Sponsors can pitch in for 5 minutes at lunch time, and their logos
will be displayed in the slides and posters. So it could be a great
opportunity for companies out there that are hiring to spot the kind
of people that they would really want to hire. After all not everybody
gets up at 7am on a Saturday to spend the day hacking away just for
the sake of learning.

Feel free to contact us through this thread or off-list with any
questions you may have. Off-list you can use josmas...@gmail.com to
reach me.

Looking forward to talking to some of you guys and Thanks in advance!

Guys, a bit more info about the event.

There are 30+ cities so far and we've got a couple of global sponsors
such as ThoughtWorks and Jetbrains. This means that we will have some
swag and other stuff such as Jetbrains licenses to give away on the
day (don't know how many yet!).

Unfortunately they don't cover local expenses (food!) so we still need
some help from local companies.

I want to thank the two guys who have been in touch so far and ask
anyone interested to please contact me or any other of the usual
suspects in this kind of stuff --> Vicky, Andrea, Declan, Jeffrey...

cheers,
José
