BarCamp Galway (Saturday, 15 September 2007) has moved to BarCampIreland4. And BarCamp Southeast (Thursday, 7 June 2007) has become EduCamp Ireland.


There will also be a BarCampBelfast on the 30th June.


What is BarCamp?


BarCamp is a technology-focused, ad-hoc gathering of passionate folks who want to share, interact and spread the love around what they spend their days and nights toiling away on.


It is an informal gathering of people from technical and business backgrounds, where information and experiences are exchanged. The event is geared towards sharing knowledge and learning from others and there is a policy of encouraging active participation in all discussions.


How much does it cost?


BarCamp is free. However, if you plan to attend BarCamp you are strongly encouraged to sign up so we can gauge how many will attend.


How do I sign up?


Please add your name to the list on this page or mail us at info at barcampdublin.com


You can also let us know what topics you are interested in by editing this page.


When and where is it on?


Ireland's third BarCamp will take place in Dublin on Saturday, 21st April 2007.


Registration starts at 9:15 AM and the first talk kicks off at 10:00 AM.


The organisers are Joe Drumgoole, Elly Parker, Paul Walsh, Eoghan McCabe and Paul Browne.

What ideas folks want to hear about or talk about


BarCamp is a conference with a difference. At BarCamp, anyone can present. In fact, if this is your first time at BarCamp, presenting is actively encouraged. Talks will typically be 30 minutes followed by 15 minutes Q&A / discussion but talks can be as short or as long as you like. You can use PowerPoint slides, or forego slides altogether. Talks can be technical or non-technical.


The BarCamp ethos is about sharing information. There is no overriding theme to the conference. If you would like to talk at BarCamp you can either sign-up beforehand or sign-up on the day.


There will be a whiteboard and post-its. If you want to sign-up on the day, just post the title of your talk on an available time-slot on the whiteboard.
