Mark's BarCamp Photos

National Capital Scan contrasts BarCampOttawa3 to the OCRI event held the day before in Ottawa. What do you think?

What is it?

What is BarCampOttawa3? Think of it as a way to get the tech/geek community together in Ottawa, Ontario. Only one thing is certain: It's up to you to decide. The most important thing you should take away from the event? Relationships with other geeks in Ottawa!


Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join. When you come, be prepared to share with barcampers. When you leave, be prepared to share it with the world.


Questions? Check out the google groups mailing list at: http://groups.google.com/group/barcamp/ or just post them in the "Questions" section at the bottom of this page.



When & Where

BarCamp - Saturday, March 31, 2007 8:30am to 5pm. Carleton University

~Carleton University campus map - Tory Building Foyer 1125 Colonel By Drive

Additional rooms available for event: Tory 202, 204, 206, 215, 217 and 360.




If you are not familiar with the Carleton Campus, we strongly recommend you

print off and bring a copy of the available map with you. It will likely save you

some time and perhaps a bit of frustration.


If coming via the Queensway, exit at Bronson and proceed south, past Carling

Avenue and Dows Lake. The University entrance is approximately 1.5 kilometers south of the Queensway, on your right. There is a set of lights at Sunnyside/University Drive. Turn Right.


Proceed west on University Drive, but turn right as University Drive veers

left and south. This will put you on Campus Avenue. Proceed west for 100 meters or so. You'll see a Stop sign. Turn Left.


Proceed south on Campus Avenue approximately 300 meters

to Parking Lot 2 (P2). Use the Visitors portion of P2 (which is after the Pass Holders section of P2).


Refer to the map. The Tory Building is due west of P2.


You can enter the Tory Building from the "back" (it's a large glass clad,

rectangular shaped building) but it's likely easier to walk around it (up

the stairs and turn right) and enter the building via the "formal" West

facing entrance. We'll have a few signs up to assist you.


If you're coming from the south, you'll need to pick up either Bronson

Avenue or use Prince of Wales/Highway 16 to Meadowlands.


If off Bronson, follow the above directions, but turn left at University/Sunnyside.


If off Prince of Wales/Highway 16, turn right at Meadowlands, and then turn left at the first set of lights onto Colonel By Drive.


Turn right at the next set of lights onto University Drive, and take your first

left onto Library Road and park in Lot 1. You then want to walk east to the

Tory Building.


There are a number of large White on Red University Signs that provide general directions around campus. These you'll find generally helpful, but we're trying to tune up some signs for Barcamp that will take out any guess work.


The Organizers look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.




Parking - Just to be Clear

Parking is free on Saturdays and Sundays. The closest lots to the Tory Building are Lot 1 and Lot 2. Click on the campus map above to find the nearest lots.



Written instructions to login into the campus wireless network for general Internet access will be provided on-site. After 5:30pm access to the network will be suspended.



Casual & interactive


Scheduled Sessions

Barcamp is about participation and discussion. Below is a schedule if you'd like to present - to add yours (Click Edit Page & Log On). We'll have projectors, screens & white boards. Bring a laptop, memory stick or what ever you need to illustrate your points - OpenOffice or PowerPoint decks, 'Demos', code snippets or what ever - to engage participants.


Sessions are 40 minutes, but with an active audience, probing insights and both you and the audience involved in Q&A a 15 or so minute presentation is all that needed to start the discussion.

Proposed Sessions

What do you want to talk and learn about? There are 48 sessions to discuss trends, technologies, implementations and to demo what you're working on - shine a light on your interests - present.


Add a proposed session here


  1. Introduction to Adobe Apollo: A cross-OS runtime that allows developers to leverage their existing web development skills (Flash, Flex, HTML, Ajax) to build and deploy desktop RIA’s. http://labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/Apollo
  2. One Laptop Per Child: We're putting a laptop in the hands of every child in the world. Presenting the project ideals and goals (learning-by-doing, cooperation, eco-friendliness, and openness), hardware and software platform, quick primer on writing OLPC activities, and (the part everyone looks forward to) a demonstration of the real hardware. http://www.laptop.org/
  3. Strategic Design >> Mashing-up SaaS and Sarbanes-Oxley: Designing your Software-as-a-Service app to be compliant with legislative acts such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, PIPEDA, and others can give a significant competitive edge. It can be relatively easy to be audited for compliance - and that makes your hosted solution very appealing to any publicly traded enterprise. http://www.sensorymetrics.com/
  4. Internet-Connected Door Locks - Access Control for the Rest of Us: LochIsle is developing a new platform for access control that lets everyone carry one key for all the locks in their lives. Well, all the LochIsle-enabled locks anyway. Presenting the concepts, how it works. Demo of the hardware. Lots of issues for security, privacy, freedom, convenience, paranoia. http://www.lochisle.com/
  5. Social Software and Traditional Media - How do they fit? Traditional media still have the reach, and their content is more valuable (revenue vs content ratio) but they're all looking over their shoulders at online media which is gaining an increasing proportion of viewers time - affecting everyones business models. How should traditional media compete? What is the role of social software? (Open Discussion - Peter Childs
  6. ECommerce and Social Software - Physical shopping is a social experience - running in to acquaintances, watching people and excursions with family & friends. Online shopping is about the price, choice and deliver. Is their a role for social expereinces in online shopping and how would you add it? (Open Discussion Peter Childs)
  7. Starting a Tech Company? Ten (or so) Essential Legal Considerations - Building on the discussions on Founders Agreements at the last Barcamp, this will be a more general discussion about key legal issues that arise in starting a technology company.

Learn about session - Presenters needed for the following topics



  1. Software as a service - If you are a software company what are the possible revenue sources from this software. What kinds of services can you offer, how to set this up to mazimize your porfits. (Farzi Khazai TechGemini has agreed to present this)
  2. Hosted vs hardware (server) solution - Should this software be hosted at a secure datacentre or shipped on a server and maintained by you?
  3. Privacy - The U.S.A homeland security has access to data for American owned datacentres. As a Canadian company with canadian data how do you keep them for accessing this private Canadian information? Are there any rules, guidelines etc.
  4. Open source hardware and/or firmware.
  5. Django An introduction and hands on examples on how to take advantage of the framework towards web application development.
