This will be the third BarCamp I’ve been involved with, an every one has been a blast so far. It’s a great opportunity to share ideas and learn with other people in an open environment.
If you’ve never been to a Bar Camp before, you can read more about them here: http://barcamp.org
I’ve included some of the event details here, but visit the BarCampNYC4 wiki for more details at: http://barcampnyc.org
BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering 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. The event doesn’t cost any money, but there is a price: all attendees must give a demo, a session, or help with one. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn are 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.
BarCampNYC4 has a home! NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program @ the Tisch School of the Arts has graciously offered to host our event on May 30-31 at their space at 721 Broadway. For those familiar, this is the same place that’s opened up to the public every December and May for ITP’s Winter and Spring Shows, when students showcase their creative, innovative projects for all to see.
Saturday, May 30, and Sunday, May 31, 2009
