An event showcasing cutting-edge applications will take place this
weekend in San Francisco. The fifth annual CodeCon event features
presentations from developers of interesting, innovative real-world
applications, and is set to run from Friday, Feb. 10 through Sunday,
CodeCon was started in 2002 by BitTorrent author Bram Cohen and Len
Sassaman, author of the Mixmaster anonymous remailer. The event is
sponsored in part by independent book publisher No Starch Press, which
has offered Linux-related titles for more than a decade.
