I thoroughly enjoyed BarCampRDU and I hope everyone else did as well. We had a lot of positive feedback so I am chalking it up as a huge success. There was a lot of participation and “knowledge transfer”, which is exactly what this event is all about. 19 months had passed since the previous one, which took place in 2011. BarCampRDU is officially rebooted!
This BarCampRDU *almost* did not happen. Everything came together at the very last minute. The sponsors that supported this event did so on a very short notice. If we had not been so fortunate, to have these awesome companies, organizations, and even individual contributors, who are all passionate about giving back to the community, there would have been no coffee, donuts, bagels, drinks, tshirts, lunch, or comfortable venue facilities (the sweet nectars of BarCampRDU).
BarCampRDU 2014 is tentatively scheduled for 17 May 2014. So please forward this to any potential sponsors *before* they begin to make marketing budget decisions for their next fiscal year. Sponsorship opportunities are located http://trilug.org/barcamp/sponsorship/
Remember! Be sure to check out our sponsors before considering other non-BarCampRDU supportive companies. Twitter handles of our sponsors and partners are below, for those who are willing to publicly thank and mention nice things about them as a contribution to BarCampRDU.
Finally, I would like to thank all of the volunteers, participants, and attendees! Thanks for your hard work, your time, your creativity, your enthusiasm, your contribution, and your willingness to share your knowledge, passion, and ideas! I hope to see you all next year BarCampRDU 2014! Please share your pictures and tweets #barcamprdu
