A Barcamp. In Amsterdam. Edition IV. Come on by!


For those who don't know about Barcamp, it is a series of 'unconferences' in which the participants set the agenda and are the presenters – all topics welcome. So come on by and give you own your own talk or workshop!


The Next Web Conference is April 3 and 4 and a bunch of people will be in town for the conference. We hope to complement The Next Web with something more intimate and, perhaps, more technical. Consider this Barcamp's relation to The Next Web as the original BarCamp was to FooCamp.
