As you are probably aware, thanks to Diane Leeper, we have an amazing t-shirt again this year!  Get there early and pick yours up, we have limited quantities and we know that they will go fast!
The Event
We will serve breakfast pastries and coffee in the morning and we will have lots of water and sodas for you throughout the day.  Speakers will be hanging out in the cafeteria area through out the day, so look for them there after their sessions.  We have about 15 sponsor booths, so it will be a fun area to hang out at. 
We have a great lunch planned for everyone, so make sure that you come hungry!  At the end of the day, we will give away tons of prizes so stick around until the end before you run out to the after party.
We will make heavy use of Twitter to send out any updates throughout the event, so be sure to follow hashtag #OrlandoCC.
