Event details


What is BarCamp?

Barcamp is an ad-hoc gathering of people in and interested in the Edmonton tech community. BarCamp is a series of loosely scheduled 20 minute presentations/discussions about whatever the community is interested in.

How it works?

Everyone shows up in the morning and people write their name on a block of time with a topic, idea, whatever, that want to present, discuss, learn, etc. Everyone should have a topic in mind they’d like to lead a discussion on. Each session is only 20 minutes so you don’t have to prepare a big speech or PPT. The sessions should be interactive allowing for the audience to be a part of the discussion.

Every 1/2 hr a new session starts and goes for 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes of hallway talk and deciding on your next session.

When is BarCamp?

Saturday July 19th, 10:00 am to 4pm with the possibility of an impromptu trip to a local pub should the community desire to continue the discusson.

Where is BarCamp?

The Edmonton World Trade Center, Floor 6. You can find a Google map here.

How much does BarCamp cost?

Nothing. Free. Nadda. BarCamp is a sponsored event. We have arranged a couple of generous sponsors to cover the room, lunch, beer, etc. A big thank you to our sponsors:

Nexopia - http://www.nexopia.com/

Tec Edmonton - http://www.tecedmonton.com/

Who should come?

You! Everyone! No matter what you interest in technology we can almost guarantee there will be something that you will find interesting, or someone that you will find interesting to talk to.

What are people going to be talking about?

We are planning on having three different presentation rooms, as well as a couple of discussion rooms/areas, a “business” room, a “tech” room, and a “misc” room. Ultimately the topics will be whatever the community want them to be.

What should I bring?

Whatever you want. We are arranging wifi so that you will be able to bring your laptops if you like. Also bring whatever other gadgets you want to talk about, show off, etc. Have a new iPhone, Arduino, Lego Mindstorms, whatever: bring it, play with it, show it off. Or bring nothing at all. Whatever you like.

Where do I sign up?

Given the space limitations on the venue we have 125 spots open based on first come first serve. Please sign us ASAP to make sure that you have a spot, you can sign up here. Rest assured we won’t give your name or email out to anyone, or use it to contact you, without your permission. Please sign up here: https://www.inviteright.com/E18395DA
