What is BarCamp?

BarCamp is an “unconference” – a full day of 6 sessions in 11 rooms of Huntsman Hall. Sessions are on a variety of topics, and the day is created collaboratively – built by the people, for the people. Attendees actually help create the schedule as the day begins.

How Does it Work?

When you arrive, you’ll see a big board with an empty grid with times along one side and rooms along another. If you have a talk planned, you can post it to that board starting at 8:15am. Write it on a card with a short description and your name, and we’ll post it to the schedule for you. As the board fills up, attendees can start to see what’s happening and when – and plan their day.

Can I Give a Talk?

Of course! We encourage any attendee interested in giving a talk to post their topic on the board, but it is not required. Most people are there to listen, learn and discuss in sessions and don’t necessarily lead a session.

What Kind of Talks?

Topics vary from the technical (“Wordpress Child Themes”) to the inspiring (“Running: Not Just for the Zombie Apocalypse”). From practiced talks (“Designing for People”) to open discussions (“Nerds w/ Kids Roundtable”). Also, if you don’t like the talk you’re in, use the “rule of two feet” to get up and go to a different talk.
