--> BarCamp Brighton is an unconference to be held on the weekend after dConstruct, 8-9 Sept 2007 at Madgex's offices, 30-31 North St., Brighton (capacity: 100). The goal of this (the first) BarCamp Brighton is to bring together tech professionals in Brighton and people in town for dConstruct to learn and cowork. BarCamp Brighton is a two day event: if you like you can sleepover on the Saturday night. Just bring a sleeping bag and camp mat as you'll be sleeping on the floor.
Unlike many conferences you may have been to, a BarCamp is free and all content is provided by the attendees. There are no spectators, only participants. Attendees must give a demo, a session, or help with one, or otherwise volunteer / contribute in some way to support the event. BarCamp is 100% non-commercial, non-profit and community driven. No one is paid for their time, no one is charged to come and no profits are made.
--> Tickets open on 8 August, at 11am
Mail barcampbrighton at googlemail dot com if you'd like to be reminded by email. If you want to come along, we'd recommend registering early. Ticketing will be via Event Wax and we'll provide a URL nearer the time. Go here to register (from 11am). Note: sadly, being marked as "attending" or "watching" at upcoming is no guarantee of a ticket. Sold out in 22 minutes. Sorry everyone who missed out.

So my sister had to pick *this* weekend to get married :-(
This is going to be messy.
how do you wanna keep track of the addings?
I don't suppose there's anyway you could announce this before general registration for d.construct opens in about a week?
erm... if madgex isn't big enough wouldn't it be worth looking for a bigger venue? or given that it's 2x oversubscribed already, looking to run 2 events (one per pier? ;))
girl vs boys? :)
wow, there's going to be over a hundred disappointed people who won't fit in... maybe we should all just pitch tents outside ;-)
I'm hoping I can get into this one somehow! I'll be in the area, after all. :-P
80 tickets available, but 118 people "attending"? Good luck, all.
My ticket's booked - if anyone wants a lift from Oxfordshire / High Wycombe / Slough / Crawley etc. then I can pick up on the way.
(Google for Oxford to Brighton to see if you're a lucky lift-winner.)
Booked mine. I told you I was attending. ;)
Booked my place. Where can we see a list of all the people attending?
Ooh, so the day after d.Construct 2007 then eh? Interesting!
