If you can speak at the code camp, that would be great. Otherwise, I think you'll find attending to be enjoyable and educational. The code camps always have great speakers and great attendance.
From Chris Steen at CMAP:
Central Maryland Association of .NET Professionals (CMAP) will holding its Code Camp 2007 Fall Edition on October 13, 2007. The Code Camp will be held from 9am - 5pm in Columbia, MD.

It covers what .NET technologies are, how they work, and how you can put them to use in your Windows or Web application. This track is an ideal place for new comers to the world of .NET or those who wanted a quick refresher on the principles behind the design of .NET technologies.
.NET is an ever developing and changing technology. The sessions in this track will help you keep up with the recent and upcoming changes in .NET. Examples of future .NET technologies include LINQ, SQL Server 2008, .NET 3.5, and C# 3.0, among others.
