San Francisco - February 11, 2003 - No Starch Press, the publisher that makes computing fun, is pleased to announce its sponsorship of CodeCon 2.0 (http://www.codecon.org/), which takes place February 22 through 24 in San Francisco. CodeCon 2.0 is the premier event in 2003 for P2P, application development, and network security and is an excellent venue for developers to showcase their work. "We're very pleased to have No Starch Press sponsor CodeCon," conference co-founder Bram Cohen said. "No Starch Press has consistently published quality books aimed at technologists much like the attendees of CodeCon." Bill Pollock, publisher of No Starch Press, appreciates the developer-friendly focus of CodeCon. “We are excited to be a part of CodeCon 2.0. Many conferences don't really appreciate the developer. CodeCon does, however, which makes for a truly unique experience.” Boasting attendees from across the globe, CodeCon appeals to the global community developers working on the most advanced Internet technologies. "Our formula is simple," conference co-founder Len Sassaman said. "We require all presentations of new software to involve working demos, and be presented by an actual developer involved with the project. CodeCon's no-nonsense atmosphere makes it an ideal opportunity for the Internet's most prominent developers to meet and exchange ideas about the software inventions which will shape the global networks of tomorrow.
