Overview

What is Barcamp?

BarCamp is an ad-hoc un-conference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees. 

All attendees are encouraged to give a demo, a session, a presentation, or help with one. All attendees are expected to be participants. All presentations are scheduled the day they happen. Prepare in advance, but come early to get a slot on the wall. 

Presenters are responsible for making sure that notes/slides/audio/video of their presentations are published on the web for the benefit of all and those who can’t be present. 

Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.

Drawing on Psychology, Social Psychology and Behavioral Economics, I'll present a framework for thinking about behavior (the Theory of Planned Behavior), and tools to encourage, cajole and push your users into adopting a desirable behavior. If time permits I'll work through applying these tools to encouraging upgrades in a freemium model webapp. -Graham King
  • Open Electronic Health Record - Citizen-centric electronic health records management: "One-half of Canadian citizens have an electronic medical record -- meaning information stored in electronic form in one place -- but only 17 percent have an electronic health record -- one that contains all their essential health information accessible from anywhere." Trying to figure out how to improve on that using open data, open source and open standard solutions. Working on background research and scoping problem/solution domain on project wiki. Feel free to garden/contribute. Working on this project at the Waldorf Fri night. Ping me on Twitter @pjvangarderen if you want to help out. Have to coach kid's soccer tomorrow morning but will try to drop back in afternoon.
