What

 

BarCamp (pronounced BAH-camp) is an unconference, organized on the fly by attendees, for attendees. There is no cost to come, but you can't just attend a BarCamp-- you have to participate by giving a presentation, a lightning talk, or joining into another cooperative event. For Boston BarCamp, we are expecting a turnout of around 150 people.

Don't worry about the weather -- The "camping" space at Monster is indoors.

 

So you want to come to BarCamp Boston?

 

If you want to come, please register at BarCampBostonRegistrants. If you don't register, you won't get a T-shirt!

 

When and Where

 

BarCamp will be held at Monster Worldwide, Clocktower Place, Maynard, MA 01754. Monster is providing an enormous venue with ample parking, wifi, an auditorium, several discussion rooms, showers, cafeteria, and courtyards. Shuttle service from a nearby commuter rail station will be available; you can also sign up to share rides from your hometown at the Warhammer Online forum

BarCamp will start at 9am on Saturday, June 3 and end at 5pm on Sunday, June 4 The Macro Schedule is now available. We will populate about 30% of the session slots over the next couple of days. The rest of the sessions will be dynamically scheduled on site in keeping with the BarCamp tradition. This should allow plenty of flexibility for spontaneity and Ad Hoc..ery.

For people not driving, volunteers will be providing rides to and from the South Acton Commuter Rail stop all weekend. Sign up on BarCampBostonDirections if you need a ride.
