Tuesday starts the first day of CodeMash. You will be super full of excitement and energy. Yipee! You can expect very few sponsors the first few days. Tuesday and Wednesday follow the same formula, except for evening activities.
Assuming you checked in the night prior, head down to breakfast in the main dining room (the Kilimanjaro Ballroom on the map).
Sessions run from 8am – noon, when we break for lunch. Lunch will be back in the main dining room, and is an hour long. Then sessions will resume for the afternoon from 1pm to 5pm.
When picking sessions, remember to check http://prereqs.codemash.org/ to get your system ready with the bits you might need for the session. You can change sessions during the day as well. If you are halfway through a session, and it just isn’t doing it for you, just go to something else. The speakers won’t mind, and you should do what you can to get the most out of CodeMash while you are here.
There isn’t an attendee dinner on Tuesday or Wednesday, so you have from 5pm – 8pm on your own. There are several restaurants in the Kalahari, and many in the surrounding area. This is also a good time to get some waterpark time in, because the week only gets busier.
Come back down to the main dining room for the PreCompiler Mixer at 8pm. We will have appetizers, and lots of great conversation.
Lazer Tag and the Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator missions will start at 7pm. Meet at the Artemis Bridge room (Salon C) a bit before your reserved time.
Lightning talks start at 7pm, in the main dining room, and go until they are all done. Even if you are just showing up with a two day ticket, drop in and have some fun.
There is also a Welcome Reception, open to everyone, in the Grand Hall at 8pm. Come meet the speakers, and chat with them about their sessions. There will be a cash bar.
Sponsor Golf! – Sponsor golf is a nine hole putt putt course. Start outside of Longnecks at 6pm to get your clubs and scorecard. Can you beat the nine sponsors that have designed devilish obstacles for you to overcome? Can your team of four score well enough to win the coveted trophy? Trophies awarded during Thursday dinner.
