It’s that time of year again… it’s time for BarCamp.
BarCamp actually has nothing to do with an actual “Bar” per se. It’s a social media, social networking, and open-format technology unconference. If you’ve become familiar with the Northern Voice Conference, it’s similar but on a smaller scale. For a full description of BarCamp and unconferences, check out my BarCamp 2008 Save the Date post.
Who: You, and approximately 299 friends
When: Saturday, October 3rd, 2009 (kick off party on Friday October 2nd)
Where: Discovery Parks Vancouver (old QLT building) on Great Northern Way
Tickets: Available online for $25 and include party, t-shirt, and breakfast & lunch
More: Flickr group, web chat, draft schedule. Sessions to be decided by attendees, will also include PhotoCamp (thanks to John for the reminder).

This is my fourth annual BarCamp and I must say, the first BarCamp Vancouver in 2006 changed my life. I did my first live blog that weekend and met some amazing people whom I still communicate with, admire, and look up to in the Vancouver tech community.
Tickets are on sale now and for only $25 (including t-shirt, party, and meals) it’s the hottest deal in town.
