BarCamp Vancouver

Last modified on August 17th, 2007

Tonight I’ll be heading down to the Alibi room in gastown for the opening ceremonies of BarCamp Vancouver. For those of you who aren’t aware what BarCamp is, it’s essentially an “unconference” where the participants meet and generate their own discussions about things that interest them. The closest event to this that I’ve been a part of was the unconference at Northern Voice back in February, which had a really great turn out. Here’s the official description from the BarCamp website:

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 are encouraged to give a demo, a session, a presentation, or help with one. All attendees are expected to be participants. All presentations are scheduled the day they happen. Prepare in advance, but come early to get a slot on the wall.

I’m not entirely sure what to expect tomorrow, but tonight I’ve been told the liquor will be flowing-a-plenty. I’m gonna meet up with Rebecca and Boris tonight for a few drunks, and then I’m gonna hack away on a few personal side projects with Boris during the day tomorrow.

Should be a good time.

    What do you mean tomorrow? Barcamp is 24 hours. We’re hacking all night, while drunk. I’m really looking forward to all the recorded voice mails.

    You should ping Dustin and tell him to come….

    Really? I had no idea.. Now the whole “are you crashing at Bryght” question makes sense.. I guess I’ll bring my computer then.

    im going to be heading home then showering in the morning then coming back in — nothing personal :p

    See you guys there! I’m still on the fence of staying over or racking up the seabus milage tonight/tomorrow.

    Mostly the thought of lugging all my stuff down there is making me want to just do what Rebecca is doing and head home and then back first thing.

  5. So lucky, dang, I wish I were there.

  6. Hey, also my blog is all new. So check it out!
