The first ever (and hopefully annual) Codeapalooza event was held on September 6, 2008 in Wheaton, IL (a suburb of Chicago).  The event was a partnership between the Chicago .NET User Group and the Chicago alt.net group.   After the conference ended we sat down with some of the organizers and speakers and did a roundtable discussion that led to conversations about UX, languages and what you would like to do if you could "code for fun".
