Having heard the news today of Steve Jobs passing, I feel the need to pause the frenzy and last minute tasks getting ready for Code Camp just 3 short days from now. Steve affected us all here in Silicon Valley in such a profound way, shaping not only our products, but instilling in so many of us the passion to reach higher than the top. Though my personal preference was never for his products, I’ll always remember Steve as someone who accomplished the difficult remarkably quickly, and the impossible in just a little bit longer.
Sunday morning, at 9:15AM Lino Tadros, my good friend and faithful historian of Silicon Valley history, has generously offered to retrace the steps of Apple in light of Steve Job’s passing today. Though other chores seem to always get in my way of attending the awesome speakers’ sessions at Code Camp, I intend to sit in on this one. We will be in Room 1500 which is also known as Appreciation hall. I know a lot of people will be planning on attending and as it only holds about 200 people, make sure you get there early to get a seat. Our code camp home page will continue to run in quiet respect for Steve through tomorrow morning as we all reflect on his life.
That’s it for now. Tomorrow afternoon we will be assigning class rooms based on everyone’s choices of sessions they plan to attend. If you have not done that yet, please come back to the site and pick. It is a big help for us. Expect in your email tomorrow night details of all the sessions, PDFs you can print with the schedule as well as all the other information you’ll need to attend Code Camp.
