Code Party - the photo album
Thanks to every participant for the first Code Party organized in Ireland. I am sure everybody learned a lot from this experience. I wish also thet all participants continue their respective project, so that I can publish the results soon.
Technically I can say that even if VS 2005 and SQL 2005 are in Beta stage, no major problems happened. Only the Sunya team encounter some strange behavior from SQL Server Express beta. It's also good news that the new tools GUI didn't give too much headache. I couldn't find the Diagram features in SQL server, don't know if it's really there in the Beta version or not.
I am now preparing already the next one.
I am thinking about May for the date. I listened to all the feedback I have collected from Saturday and already come with some new ideas for that.
So check the next INDA's newsletter for more information :-)

Team 3 are the winners ! They are known now as the Balkan Express Team. They have in their hands the vouchers they deserve from Software Paths for training.
They worked on the Nanny project and they were able to produce some functioning code after only 3 hours. They covered everything from Business logic to a web application.
Team 1 was working on the Book online project and they tried hard to produce their code on time. Like the other players, they were very close to win. (one missing on the picture, Graham)
Team 2 knows also as DNJ Video shop, works on the VideoShop online project
Team 4 named Suyna (Zero in Hindi) was working on the holidays letting agency. They won the best Team Spirit prize, showing that a strong database model is always the foundation for every good business project
No they are not the Team 5, but they are our Judges. Thanks to Clare, Robert, Eamon and Nick for the help they provide to make this day a great success.
The Help Team, or Help Desk Support if you prefer.
