A Message to Sponsors
The Northern Virginia CodeCamp is a free event to promote sharing, learning and friendship within the
development community. It is one of the oldest community events dedicated to coding in the
Washington, D.C metro area. We regularly attract some of the top talent in the area, including
Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVPs), authors and community leaders, as well as signature
presentations like the .Net Rocks! Road Show with Carl Franklin and Richard Campbell.
The commitment made by our sponsors keeps this event free and open to registered attendees. In
return, companies enjoy an excellent way to highlight their products and services, and recruit potential
employees.
We thank you for your interest and hope that you find a level that meets your needs. If you have
questions about the packages, please contact David Berry ([email protected]) and include “NVCC”
in the subject line.
Venue: This year, we are excited to announce expansion of the event to include the renovated Microsoft
Technology Center (MTC). This affords us the opportunity to offer our sponsors more space which is colocated with the dining area on the 2nd floor. Our introduction of the bingo/raffle card last year was
successful, promoting a higher level of interaction with our attendees.

Ground Rules
As a volunteer effort, we strive to keep operations simple and streamlined for our sponsors and
ourselves. NoVA CodeCamp has some simple rules:
1)
“By Developers, for Developers” – Our motto emphasizes our mission. Attendees are very
focused on understanding new technologies and benefiting from interacting with leading
speakers in the field.
2) Easy for Us. Easy for You. – Without your support, this event would not be possible. We want
to keep any paperwork to a minimum. As volunteers, our staff and time is very limited. We will
make every effort to highlight your patronage in our event.
3) We do not release our attendee list – We apologize for this but we have an obligation to our
attendees to protect their privacy. That said we are happy to distribute the materials and
content that help them contact you.
