How does it work

The first thing to remember is that a BarCamp is not like a traditional conference where the customers come to listen to 'experts' ramble on about a topic. Instead the content is provided by you, the participant. The main part of the event will consist of four 1.5 hour sessions. Each session will have three or four break-out groups discussing a specific topic. Each of these discussions will be moderated by one of the participants but everyone can contribute their perspective to the discussion. The topics for the break-out groups get decided at the start of the day by the entire group (so please try not to be late). Sounds complicated, but actually works out very easily in practice, and this format provides the best way of exposing everybody to the newest, and often most radical, ideas as well as letting everyone get a feel for each others strengths.

The schedule for the day will look approximately like this:

  • 9.30-10.00am Welcome and introductions
  • 10.00-10.30am Group allocation of discussion topics
  • 10.30-12.00pm First session
  • 12.15-1.45pm Second session
  • 1.45-2.30pm Late lunch (we will have some coffee and breakfast when you arrive)
  • 2.45-4.15pm Third session
  • 4.30-6.00pm Final session and wrap-up
