BarCamp has been all over the world, and now it's the Cedar Valley's turn. BarCamp is an ad-hoc, attendee-generated un-conference where participants set the agenda... in other words, a not-to-be-missed opportunity for creative people of all types to exchange ideas.
Have a plan you've been dying to bounce off others? Read an awesome book you can't stop talking about? You can lead a session. Not so sure about that? You can just hang out and listen.
$5 and you're in. See you there.
What is BarCamp Cedar Valley, you ask? Oh, it's just a conference, wrapped in a forum, wrapped in a networking event, wrapped in chocolate.* In other words, it's a get together for creatives, entrepreneurs, developers and others in the Cedar Valley where pleasantries, business cards and, most importantly, knowledge will be exchanged. Anyone can talk about anything, but no one is required to speak. You can just come and observe if that's what fits your fancy. There's no strict schedule, and you don't even have to decide whether you want to speak until the day of the event. Not sure what you might talk about? See our session ideas below. Learn about the history of BarCamp from the always-reliable Wikipedia. (Yes, we just used Wikipedia as a source. You would have Googled it anyway.)
*Chocolate is metaphorical. Sorry. You're welcome to bring some, though.
BarCamp has no set agenda until attendees arrive the morning of the event. We'll have a board where you can sign up for a 20-minute time slot to present your topic. Still not so sure? Lots of people don't decide on a topic until arriving that day. Need a little inspiration? Check out the ideas below:
