If you're going to attend, make sure you add your name to the BarCampRDU wiki under "Campers" - that is where we'll be tallying attendance. We've provided this Upcoming event as a convenience.
The first ever BarCamp held in the Raleigh-Durham area! To be held at the offices of Red Hat, Raleigh, NC.
What's a BarCamp? Read this First!
A BarCamp is an unconference where people interested in a wide range of technologies come together to teach and learn. Unfamiliar with unconference? Here's the idea in a nutshell. Rather than having scheduled speakers, everyone pitches sessions the morning of the BarCamp. Those sessions are put on a schedule, and lots of little groups form for intense group learning. Yeah, its different from a regular conference - but it works!
The idea of an unconference came together when people realized the best times they were having at conferences were the times between sessions - where people with like interests could meet ad hoc. The goal of BarCamp is to facilitate this type of interaction for an entire day. We supply the food, the space, the wireless, the projectors - you show up to teach and learn.
To make BarCamp successful, we need campers, space, and sponsors. We're working on the latter two - we just need you to sign up on the wiki and come!
