BarCampNola is New Orleans' premier community driven, self organizing, free, tech conference. Barcamp New Orleans, BarcampNola, Bearcamp. It goes by many names, and elicits a diverse range of emotions for participants every year. This means that you, BarCampNola attendees, get to decide and give the talks/presentations at the conference.

BarCampNola is made possible not only by our generous sponsors and organizers, but also by you - BarCampNola's attendees. While it's a tech-focused event, anything goes. Heck, "How to make the perfect sandwich" is a deliciously acceptable talk, especially if you've got a hands-on demo of the latest sandwich technology.

The speaker line-up is generated by you and the other attendees who have a topic, story, knowledge, or experience to share with the rest of the community.

How Do I Present?

Come with an idea or a passion that you want to share with the group. At 10:00 a.m. SHARP we'll start gathering sessions and assigning time slots.

Presentations should either be 45 minutes with 15 minutes for questions OR 15 minute "lightning presos" with 15 minutes of questions. Lightning Presos will be scheduled two per slot.

No, you cannot reserve your presentation slot in advance. Be there at 10:00 a.m. SHARP (or send a delegate!) to get your favorite slot.

We will have projectors available. If you are presenting, please bring an offline copy, just in case!
