Bearcamp Nola is your local incarnation of user-generated conferences called BarCamps. There is absolutely no fixed schedule, no speaker list, no mercy.
You have the freedom to listen, network, and speak on whatever topics you are most passionate about. The intensity will break you. It is insanity. It is madness.
It is Barcamp.
Anyone can present! Some prepare presentations ahead of time, others decide to talk the day of.
Generally the topics revolve around technology, creative, and entrepreneurialism, but you can speak on any topic you are passionate about. Something you want to teach; experiences you want to share; challenges you’ve faced.
After the morning introduction, you can sign up to present your topic. Then, in a mad dash, everyone fills out the schedule of speakers on the spot!
Presentations can be 15 minutes, or 45 minutes long, your choice. We'll make sure to have plenty of rooms with plugs, projectors, and anything else you need to run your presentation.
Barcamp is an event for everyone. If you want to learn from your peers, share your knowledge, interests, and hobbies – Barcamp is for you. Developers, creatives, entrepreneurs, or whoever you are.
Plus you get a sweet t-shirt, and can 'trep your way through the day.
