What is Barcamp ?

Barcamp is a technology-focused, ad-hoc gathering of passionate folks who want to share, interact and spread the love around what they spend their days and nights toiling away on.

It is an informal gathering of people from technical and business backgrounds, where information and experiences are exchanged. The event is geared towards sharing knowledge and learning from others and there is a policy of encouraging active participation in all discussions.


How Much does it cost ?

Barcamp is free. However, if you plan to attend Barcamp you are strongly encouraged to sign up so we can gauge how many will attend.


When and Where is it on ?


Where - ArcLabs Research and Innovation building in Waterford IT: Research and Innovation Centre Website


Directions - Go to http://www.uk.map24.com/search?q=Carriganore%20Waterford


Detailed driving directions: https://barcamp.pbwiki.com/f/ArcLabs%20-%20driving%20directions.pdf



- if you get lost, call us at 051-302900


When - The date is Saturday January 20, '07


Time - CHANGE - 10.00 to 16.45 - we are going to run speakers in 45 minute slots to allow for good discussion and Q&A sessions afterwards. 4 rooms will be available so a 10am start gives us 28 slots and also the possibility to stretch at the end. We will schedule talks to try and avoid simultaneous runs of similiar topics.


Wheelchair accessibility ?


The venue is fully accessible for anyone in a wheelchair - with lifts to the first floor and kitted out toilets. If you have any questions or other requirements please let us know.


What Hotels are available in the area?


Cheapest (via several sites) seems to be the TravelLodge (single €59, double €69). Waterford Marina is also reasonably priced at €69. For those that can't bear to be away from an internet connection, the Ramada Viking (€69) might be a better pick and is the closest to the event location(it's 3km out from the town center). Breakfast at the Ramada is €10.

How do I get to Waterford by public transport?


By train?


Friday night: 1625 from Dublin (Heuston) arrives at 1909; 1825 arrives at 2056

Saturday morning: 0730 from Dublin (Heuston) arrives at 1009


There's a return train on Saturday evening at 1825 but note that there is a bus substition from Carlow onwards - so you won't reach Dublin until 2138, according to IÉ. Sunday morning leaves 0930 (1213) and 1300 (1525).


By bus?


Bus Éireann will have all the details! Especially relevant if you're not coming from Dublin or some place else on the Dublin-Waterford train line, as this might be a more direct route.

Bar Talk Ideas - What folks want to hear about or talk about.

Barcamp is a conference with a difference.


At Barcamp, anyone can present. In fact, if this is your first time at Barcamp, presenting is actively encouraged. Talks will typically be 15-20 minutes followed by 15 minutes Q&A/Discussion but talks can be as short or as long as you like. You can use Powerpoint slides, or forego slides altogether. Talks can be technical or non-technical.


The Barcamp ethos is about sharing information. There is no overriding theme to the conference. If you would like to talk at Barcamp you can either sign-up beforehand or sign-up on the day.

There will be a whiteboard and post-its. If you want to sign-up on the day, just post the title of your talk on an available time-slot on the whiteboard.
