BarCamp Phoenix 2009

 What

 (As stolen from BarCampNYC, as copied from...) BarCamp is an ad-hoc un-conference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees. All attendees must give a demo, a session, or help with one.

Here's an article on BarCamp NYC and a Wired writeup on the original BarCamp.

 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. 

 Preparation is now underway for BarCamp Phoenix 2009, happening Saturday, August 29th!

Why

To learn, meet people who share different interests, contribute, and push yourself and your thinking.

When

How to help

We need to find some sponsors. In particular for lunch, maybe t-shirts and some general swag. We'll also probably have an after party so a sponsor for food and drink there would be helpful as well.

I want to help

Cool! Please send E-mail to: derek AT gangplankhq DOT com.

You can also help promote Phoenix BarCamp by displaying one of these attractive logos:

The concept of this conference is start with a loose structure and build the topic plan on the day of camp with the people in attendance. The general topics are things to do with the internet or technology, perhaps Web related, but from there it's open. If there's something you'd like to present simply add it to the list, if there's something that you'd like to learn more about add it to the list of suggestions and maybe someone else will pick it up. Basically the idea here is just to collect a bunch of smart people together and allow them to talk about what ever is interesting to them. If you're an expert on something it might make a good topic, as would a simple demo of something cool that you've made.

 Let's say you have 8 \'s to spend to indicate topics you will attend - put a "\" next to each one (either scheduled or not) that you want to be a part of. 

Proposed Topics 

Note that the *actual* topics will be decided at the time of the event by those in attendance. The above list is what people planning on attending have offered to present.

Topics suggested  

  • Chatterbots
  • Sinatra
  • Google App Engine
  • Arduino
  • Game development
  • Rinda (network distributed blackboard for Ruby)
