Hello Memphis!

“BarCamp isn’t just a Web 2.0 conference. It’s an un-conference.”

BarCamp Memphis will be November 14th, at the Memphis Academy of Science and Engineering.

Barcamp Memphis will feature many great topics from social media 101, to advance programming techniques. There promises to be something for all levels of online knowledge. A sample of these sessions are posted online, but in traditional Barcamp style many more sessions will be decided the morning of the session.

Barcamp is an international conference idea that is organized by attendees. Presentations are by the attendees (campers) and for the attendees.

Barcamp is often called an “un-conference”, because it is different than the traditional conference. Barcamps usually have low registration fees, if any. They also do not have sponsored sessions. Everyone is invited to speak. This un-conference idea is that we all have knowledge to share and we are all better by sharing what we know with others.
