**No event in November ** Software Craftsman North America conference is happening in Chicago. If you plan to go, better register quick: the early bird pricing has already closed.
December, Saturday 12/14/13, starting at 8:30am running until 5:30pm (register) GLOBAL DAY of Code Retreat - Be part of something way bigger than any one Code Retreat. Once a year, alway in December, the world holds a code retreat; well actually several of them. We'll be doing our part here in Ann Arbor on the usual 2nd Saturday. We will get updates on other cities all over the world that are sharing the fun and will touch base with at least one other city as they finish their day and we begin ours. If you've never been to a Code Retreat, then don't miss this one. See the GDCR2013 map to see what you'll be participating in.
**No event in January ** The CodeMash conference in Sandusky OH is happening immediately before. Attendees who aren't too pooped out from the conference will use part of the weekend to enjoy the waterpark.
Don't worry about your desktop or disk space; we'll be programming in the cloud.
