The second TorCamp un-conference



Many thanks to the wonderful BarCampTdotSponsors! Go checkout the list of amazing with-it companies and individuals. We'll wait right here.



To learn, meet people who share different interests, contribute, and push yourself and your thinking. Besides, Chris and Tara will be in town, so why not have a BarCamp?


The Toronto Drupal Group (DUG) is organising a Drupal camp DrupalCampToronto on May 12th (immediately before BarCampTdot).

Event Info


May 13-14, 2006 Saturday noon-ish - Sunday noon-ish

171 East Liberty St. Toronto, ON M6K 3P6


There is plenty of parking in and around the building for those who are car inclined. There's plenty of space to leave your bike in the actual venue for those who are bike inclined. The TTC inclined should take the King Street (westbound) streetcar and get off at the Atlantic/Jefferson stop, then walk the short bit in to the building. There is a GO station at the foot of Atlantic for the GO inclined. Detailed map of the area, including TTC and parking directions. The actual room is the south-west corner of the building, on the ground floor (look for the building on the map with the Radiant Core logo). wino kredyt mieszkaniowy sprzedam mieszkanie sprzedam bilet

Event Schedule and Links to Session Notes


Let's make this very conversational, more revolutionary...not limiting it to that, but, would love to hear from you about how you want to change the world. What has pissed you off? What do you want to change and how do you see it changing? Through technology? Through practice? Through organizing? Of course, it's still waaaay open for technology discussions and demos.


Interested in participating in the XP Project Room? Even if you just want to drop in, we wouldn't mind knowing how many folks to expect. Learn more and declare your interest here: IplanToStopByTheProjectRoom.

What is BarCamp


(As stolen from BarCampNYC and BarCampLosAngeles, as copied from BarCampSanDiego) 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.


This event is part of the TorCamp phenomenon, started last November. It's grown from about 50 at TorCamp 1 to over 140 at the last TorCamp DemoCamp.


All attendees must give a demo, a session, or help with one. All presentions are scheduled the day they happen. Prepare in advance, but come early to get a slot on the wall.


Presenters are responsible for making sure that notes/slides/audio/video of their presentations are published on the web for the benefit of all and those who can’t be present.


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.
