"Peek-A-Booty, CryptoMail and BitTorrent are among the
programs to be presented at the first annual CodeCon, scheduled for
February 15-17. CodeCon is the new technical conference for
developers of software that enables individual freedom, including
new peer-to-peer and crypto applications. The conference's ground
rules specifically exclude any presenter without working code.
"CodeCon is the revolt of the programmers. Most conferences push
their own agenda; at CodeCon we get to tell it like it is. Direct
reports, straight from the front lines, of what the presenters
themselves are working on", said program committee chairman and
BitTorrent developer Bram Cohen.
The venue is San Francisco's DNA Lounge, which Cohen calls "the
most wired nightclub in San Francisco", following its total
renovation last year."
