What is BarCampRDU?

BarCampRDU Schedule

Barcamp content is meant to be provided by the participants. Therefore, I would like to start with a brief overview of BarCampRDU and then let “YOU” elaborate on “What is BarCampRDU?”

How it works:  BarCampRDU is an “unconference” which means there is not a rigid
schedule until everyone arrives and pitches the topics they would like
to present. Topics are recorded on paper and posted where everyone can
see and vote. The most popular topics/speakers are placed at the beginning of the day. Note: This year we may plan to gradually shorten the times allotted for talks as the day progresses. Migration into lightning talks will keep things interesting toward the end of the day.

Many of the attendees and topics are tech and open source related, but
do not have to be. BarCampRDU is an event that is driven by you! You will likely find sessions on how to juggle or even play guitar! Most of all BarCampRDU is meant to be fun and focused on socializing with other folks who have similar interests.

Since BarCampRDU is driven by the participants, only “YOU” can make it awesome! Be sure you participate because it can only be what you make it. Start now by leaving comments and sharing your experience and ideas!

BarcampRDU is a mashup of talent, skills, experience, personalities, teachers and students who come together on a Saturday with INTENT, where that intent is to learn, share, talk, listen, meet and form community around ideas and each other. Highly recommended.

BarCampRDU is an opportunity to both share with, and learn from other members of our diverse community. Whether you come looking for tech talk on app development to robotics, or esoteric topics from juggling to lock picking, you won’t be disappointed.

Barcamp is a way to learn about technology or simply something new. When you present you fill in gaps and solidify existing expertise. When you attend you can learn about things which interest you but you never really had time to pick up on your own.
