summer camp

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

John just brought this to my attention: Barcamp Vancouver (+ Photo Camp) [kk] and promptly signed us up. I started panicking about getting the time off work but it conveniently starts at 6:00pm. Here are the details:

Who?
Tech creatives: Local technologists, geeks, innovators, enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, tech writers, tech managers, bloggers, podcasters, video bloggers and hangers-on.

What?
A 24-hour ad-hoc, all-play unconference where everyone who attends participates by presenting or helping out.

Where?
Bryght Offices, 1 Alexander St., Gastown, Vancouver

When?
Friday, August 25, 6:00pm to Saturday, August 26, 6:00pm

Why?
Because it’ll be a fun party and totally informative, all at the same time. Here’s the full rundown:
https://barcamp.org/BarCampVancouver

We’ve now attended a Podcast Meetup [604] and the Vancouver Metroblogging Meetup [604] so we’re totally looking forward to participating in event. I’m certainly not guru-like enough to host a workshop but I’ll be an eager participant and help out where/when I can. I know John will be in with the podcasting crowd so maybe I can find some friends/make some connections to keep me company. I’d love to learn more about blogging and some specific features that I just can’t get my head around.

*and because none of my pics [flickr] are as impressive as most of those by people attending this event, i’ve attached a lovely pic of me on an elephant to this post. just because. it’s me on a ride-y elephant.
