BarCamp Boston 2

March 17-18 2007, MIT, Cambridge MA

 

BarCampBoston2 totally rocked with 190 people.

If you have any thoughts on what could have been even better or what should be next checkout the barcampboston Yahoo Group or maybe jot them down at BarCampBoston2Followup.

 

Stuff you'll need during BarCamp

 

  • The Schedule
  • IRC Backchannel
  • Upload your photos to the BarCampBoston Flickr pool
    • Please tag any photos or blog posts with "barcampboston" and "barcampboston2" so everyone can find them! Thanks!
  • Here's Phillipe Lejeune's video collage  of the coding contest. It's version 0.8 and we still need to add some information such as the names of the team members, a good brief description of the rules of the contest and perhaps some links to the final project(s) site(s) but overall the video rocks and really captures the vibe of the contest and BarCampBoston2.

 

 

What

 

BarCamp is an unConference, organized on the fly by attendees, for attendees. There is no registration fee, but you don't just attend a BarCamp -- you can participate in discussions, demo your projects, or join into another cooperative event. Topics may include, but are not limited to: open source software, startups, UI design, entrepreneurship, AJAX, hardware hacking, robotics, mobile computing, bioinformatics, RSS, Social Software, programming languages, and the future of technology. There will be a software development contest. The winning team gets a helicopter ride with Phil Greenspun as pilot. There will be lots of other fun activities day and night throughout the conference. Please note that BarCamp has nothing to do with Booze. There will be absolutely no alcoholic beverages on site.

How to Participate

 

There are multiple ways to participate in BarCampBoston2. If you think of a better way -- add it!

 

  • Sessions: 30-minute sessions on topics of interest. Can be a talk, discussion, panel, or whatever format you want. Sessions will be scheduled live during BarCamp by writing your name and topic on the event grid. To offer or request a session topic, add it to BarCampBoston2Sessions.

 

  • Lightning Talks: 5-minute, usually one-person talks on a specific subject. You can talk about your project, your company, or a technical challenge that's been keeping you up at night. Lightning Talks are delivered in nooks and crannies all around BarCamp in between session blocks. If you're afraid of public speaking, Lightning Talks are for you. Offer or suggest topics at BarCampBoston2LightningTalks.

 

  • Posters/Demos: Set up a table in the central common area and show everyone how you can do something useful and fun. Demo during lunch time and/or session time. Show off your own work, pick a favorite open source project, or whatever. Offer or suggest topics at BarCampBoston2Demos.

 

  • Be a sponsor: Sponsorships from the $200 level make it possible for BarCamp to be free and fun. Sponsors get their logo placed prominently on the sponsor wall, and earn a place in the heart of local geeks. Food and computer hardware giveaway sponsors are also welcome. To learn more or become a sponsor, see BarCampBoston2Sponsors.

 

  • Promote the event: BarCamp grows by word of mouth (and word of blog). Tell your friends, and visit the promote page to grab a BarCampBoston badge for your blog.

 

  • Programming Contest: New for BarCampBoston2 is a software development contest. Write something cool. Win helicopter rides with Phil Greenspun. Create the seed for a new startup. Have fun!
