BarCampDC2 Unconference for Web Geeks and Geekettes

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

Yesterday I got to experience my first BarCamp right here in DC.

For any of you not familiar with the BarCamp movement, this was a volunteer-run tech community gathering based on the principle that every participant should actively contribute in some way to the event. Newcomers especially are encouraged to give a talk or to facilitate a discussion.

Sessions I attended (speaker/facilitator):

The Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University graciously provided the space including the central meeting room and several breakout rooms.

Many of us wandered over to McFadden’s for an afterparty, partly financed by sponsors. It was great to see many familiar faces and to meet several new people in a fun and friendly environment.
