Well… I’ve just signed up to attend my very first BarCamp, which is happening in Vancouver Friday, September 26 (5pm) – Saturday, September 27 (5pm).
BarCamp is advertised as an ad-hoc un-conference where people get to share and learn in an open environment. Its also promoted as a great opportunity to meet a lot of creative and friendly people, learn about their recent projects, and where you may also brag about your own recent projects.
I’ve opted out of the bragging part, with this being my first visit, but will definitely be participating in the presentations, taking notes, and engaging in Q & A opportunities.
Apparently we’re also told to bring a sleeping bag and pillow… I guess the ‘camp’ in barcamp is taken literally! Hmmm… not sure anyone wants to see my morning face/hair, so I’ll drive in on Saturday morning and spare them the details!
