The Silicon Valley Code Camp is happening this year at Foothill College on Nov 8-9. There are over 100+ scheduled sessions lined up with nearly 1000 developer attending. Although you need to register, attending the Code Camp is free. Looking at the scheduled session, it will be a very diverse conference with talks on Open Source, Java, C#, and Web Development.
