asked to participate by giving a presentation or leading or

participating in a discussion, essentially forcing the sharing of ideas

and knowledge. You might like to check out the BarCamp web site for more

general information. Wikipedia's entry on BarCamp might also be of interest.



What to expect?



Turn up for 9am registration and put your name on the list. Talk to

people, network. We'll have a welcome / intro type talk at about 9.30am

and get into the demos, discussions, talks after that.



What to bring?



Anything you might need for yourself. We'll have lunch for everyone, but

you might want to bring your laptop, computers and other tech stuff that

might be cool, interesting, useful in your demo.


NOTE: The organisers are not responsible for your equipment or other

items you bring. You bring them at your own risk.
