I won’t be in attendance though at this late stage of the game it triggers my interest but making the journey to Cork isn’t on the cards for me tomorrow. However, it is on the cards for a nice sizeable chunk of the Irish blogging community, many of whom I check in on on a daily basis, which is actually a pity as a pint in Cork (come on… it says BeerCamp on the bottom!) would be tasty.
Anyway, those people still not in the know….
Barcamp is a technology-focused, ad-hoc gathering of passionate folks who want to share, interact and spread the love around what they spend their days and nights toiling away on. It is an informal gathering of people from technical and business backgrounds, where information and experiences are exchanged. The event is geared towards sharing knowledge and learning from others and there is a policy of encouraging active participation in all discussions.
Its free for the day (find your own parking / accommodation / look after your own bar tab) and kicks off just after 9am tomorrow in the Webworks building on Eglinton Street (come up Patricks Quay, swing over the bridge and go straight on (don’t turn right for the Bus Station) and you’ll run onto Eglinton Street in a minute or so (near enough to the city hall).
There’s a shed load of (nice and polite Ken) talks going on and it looks to be a fantastic turnout. Keep an eye on the official site and the blog as well, updating during the day no doubt, while we can also expect plenty of feedback from the many participants and attendees. There’s free WiFi going too…
Rumour has it theres some food on in Wagamama tonight (great restaurant I might add)… though its already getting late. Keep an eye on the blog for updates.
