receives an email and then has 24 hours to register a ticket before it s offered to the next person in line And if you have a ticket and can t make it for some reason do make sure that you hand it back via the Eventbrite website Share this Twitter Facebook Google LinkedIn Author Gavin Tapp Posted on March 1 2013 Categories Uncategorized Leave a comment on Sold out Waiting list in effect Barcamp Canberra is almost here Only a week or two until BarCamp Canberra for 2013 and it looks like things are shaping up pretty well 142 of 150 places have been claimed and I think we will sell out before the day if you can say that about a free event If you find that you can t make it its pretty easy to return your ticket via the Eventbrite website or you can email info barcampcanberra org for help Your returned ticket might mean that someone else can participate so its worth keeping in mind We also provide lunch pizza and sushi and returning your ticket means that we can better match the catering needs We hope you are thinking about something to show on the day if you are or if there is something that you would like to hear about or discuss post in the comments below It would be great to get a hint about what might happen on the day This year we hope to do better at recording streaming the talks so if you can t make it on the day you may not miss out entirely Streaming details will be published closer to the event And a reminder there will be a cup cake competition during the afternoon break If you start practising your recipe now it should be a strong contender come judging time Last year this provided a great range of afternoon treats and interesting conversations I can t wait to see what we get this time Share this Twitter Facebook Google LinkedIn Author Gavin Tapp

Canberra is back for the sixth year on Saturday 16 March Don t know what a BarCamp is read below We ll be in a brand new shiny venue the Inspire Centre at the University of Canberra and you can expect a great line up of speakers fantastic coffee and the return of Cupcake camp for afternoon tea As always BarCamp Canberra is an unconference with all attendees welcome to give a presentation on their favourite topics Register now to attend at http barcampcanberra2013 eventbrite com We re still seeking sponsors if you re willing to support us with dollars or inkind please contact us at info barcampcanberra org What s a barcamp If you have been before you ll know what we means But for a lot of people it can be a bit of a puzzle Is there a bar What sort of cocktails will they have Are there tents A campfire There s a good explanation but what you need to know is that BarCamp is a free volunteer run non commercial gathering to share ideas meet new people and learn new stuff Anyone can speak run a demonstration host a discussion or even perform a song Expect sessions to cover all kinds of topics and vary in style There is normally lots of interaction between speakers and audiences asking questions and offering ideas It s a great place to discuss tricky problems with a diverse group of smart people Barcamp Canberra is part of a larger series of events across the world that share the BarCamp name and common aspects They emerged from the tech scene in California but now extend into many non tech topics and communities Barcamp Canberra in past years has included a number of great talks regarding government and technology reflecting both the location and the background of the BarCamp movement While we can t predict what people will want to present on based on past years you could expect talks on topics like solar panels website development map creation soil science open data design and many others Don t be put off by the seemingly vague plan for the day come and see it just works Look for further announcements on this site and on Twitter at barcampcanberra Share this Twitter Facebook Google LinkedIn Author Craig Thomler Posted on February 2 2013 Categories Uncategorized 1 Comment on Register now for Barcamp Canberra 2013 BarCamp Canberra 2013 Interested in sharing ideas You ll be excited to know that BarCamp Canberra is returning in 2013 The team of unorganisers are just awakening from their hibernation and will start putting plans together It s likely that BarCamp Canberra 2013 will take place in late Feb or early March 2013 The venue for the last two years has been at ANU but it may change for 2013 If you are new to BarCamp and puzzled by what it could mean just think of it as an event where people organise their own conference when the day begins and then share ideas and make connections It s a great opportunity to share something you have been working on find people to collaborate with or demonstrate som e skills Check out the what to expect page for more information Last year there were sessions on puppetry open government startups nerf

    to BarCamp Canberra 2012 it was great to have such wonderful range of people bring their ideas to share As mentioned at the end of the event it can be hard to explain to people what a BarCamp is and how it works so go forth and share your experience with others and encourage them to attend future BarCamps If you comment or post online about the event let us know and we ll link to it from the Barcamp Canberra website Survey Each year we survey attendees to ask what worked well and what could be improved We would appreciate if you could complete the survey here to let us know what you thought of the day http www surveymonkey com s barcampcanberra2012 Thank you to our sponsors The venue lunch drinks and other features of BarCamp were only possible due to the support of our sponsors the ANU Acidlabs C Metrics Delib Ninefold Palantir Squiz and Funnelback These organisations support the community and we encourage you to support them in return Please take a moment and visit their websites and if any interest you sign up to their newsletter blog or twitter feed These companies and organisations have interesting ideas and services they like barcamps and the people who attend and really support the community Please volunteer BarCamp Canberra is a volunteer run event and we are always looking for people who are willing and able to dedicate some time to support the planning unorganising and on the day support needed to make the BarCamp successful if you are interested in helping out with future Canberra BarCamps in any capacity please email us at info barcampcanberra org Different levels of commitment can be catered for from a few hours each week in the months before to helping out on the day Most planning is done electronically with occasional meetings over coffee so its flexible friendly and efficient Ideas for future venues and sponsors As an almost no budget event we are always on the lookout for sponsors and venues ANU have provided fantastic venues for us over the last five years but there is no guarantee that they will be able to continue to do so in the future If you know a suitable venue and you can help us secure it for no cost not asking much are we than PLEASE let us know Also sponsors we can t hold an event like BarCamp without them unless we charge money to attend and we don t want to do that If you work in a company or can suggest one that might be interested in sponsoring future BarCamps please let us know It can be big or small cash or in kind 250 and up is all it takes to make a significant contribution On behalf of all the Unorganised thank you for attending BarCamp Canberra 2012 Without the community that attends the event there would not be one We hope to see all of you plus your friends at the next BarCamp Canberra

Cupcake Competition It would be a wonderful thing if you make and bring cupcakes to barcamp There will be a very light and entertaining judging but really who doesn t just like eating cake You will be captured Part of the nature of a Barcamp is that all aspects of the day are shared Expect lots of tweeting live streaming cameras and video recording even of the audience If you don t want to be included you can ask people to exclude you but sometimes this may not be possible After the day you could ask people to untag you from photos or recordings but its better to go with the flow of the event and be a full part of the event App Development We ve heard that one barcamper will be running an all day development session in the foyer so if you would like to learn how apps are developed or to help design and build an app make sure you find them Sharing during and after the event If posting photos video or tweets online use the hashtag barcampcbr and make sure you follow barcampcanberra
