At BarCamp, you don’t have to be an expert to give a talk
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.
Talks are organized into one of four speaking categories.
Some possible talks may include:
Marketing Your iOS App
Bird Watching for fun and profit
Competitive Intelligence on a Shoestring
How to get Venture Capital
Fostering a Co-working Environment
Creative Problem Solving
How to Make the Perfect Paper Snowflake
Design for Mobile Devices
