Your collective knowledge is what makes this event worthwhile, so the first rule of BarCamp is to contribute to BarCamp. Giving a talk isn't mandatory, but we encourage attendees to get involved by sharing a demo, planning a session, or just looking for ways to share their expertise. Before you get cold feet, know that you can do a talk on anything—an operating system you use, a language you program with, or your fear of cats dressed like humans. Our venue has four speaking areas and all but one will have a projector.
Talks will be scheduled the morning of the event (that's part of the fun). We'll build a speaker schedule starting at 9:30 am, so come early if you want to guarantee a speaking spot!
BarCamp Orlando is an annual community-building event which aims to bring people from different backgrounds together for cooperative learning. Technologies such as Ruby, PHP, Java and C could be presented alongside graphic design, music, photography, and other new media. We hope to provide free T-shirts and lunch to all attendees, but can only do so with assistance from sponsors.
You can find parking for BarCamp at one of the many garages downtown. I'd personally first look for day-long parking under I-4.
BarCamp will take place in the heart of downtown Orlando at the Bumby Arcade at Church Street Station. We'll have four areas available for presentations.
Orlando has a strong tech scene, but until you know what's going on, it can seem small or even non-existent. Orlando Tech Events is a monthly newsletter for information about everything to keep on your radar if you work in the tech industry.Subscribe Now!
