You just have to be passionate. At BarCamp, you won’t find a predetermined speaker list or a line of suits passing out business cards. What you will find is some shaggy dude in a t-shirt talking about moonshine, a web developer talking about the best practices in SEO, or a world traveler sharing their experiences. BarCamp is a chance to network, learn something new, and communicate what you’re most passionate about. Come one, come all.Visit the Schedule

Absolutely not! Many people come to BarCamp just to meet new people and listen to other folks give cool presentations, and that’s great! We encourage people to participate however they are most comfortable. That’s the beauty of the “un-conference.” You can pretty much do whatever you want.
Each time slot is 30 minutes. Speakers are allowed to use that time however they wish. You could even share one 30-minute time slot with multiple people or set up a panel discussion. It’s probably a good idea to allow time for comments and questions because BarCamp audiences tend to be very participatory!
No. To be respectful of our BarCamp attendees, sales presentations or all-out sales pitches are not allowed. Don’t even try it, folks.
