CodeMash Conference is incorporated as an Ohio non-profit company, and is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)6 Business League non-profit entity.

Maybe. Remember that CodeMash is a 501(c)6 entity, not a 501(c)3 charity. Please see your own financial/legal advisors for the official word on how to handle your own tax position. (Did you really expect our lawyers to let us say anything else?)
CodeMash is organized by several volunteers from the professional developer community in the Heartland region who are recognized experts in these different technologies.
