BarCamp Miami Update. Can you help?
Miami will host its fifth BarCamp on February 19, 2012 — and we need your help!
Please RSVP at Eventbrite, where over 200 people have signed up!
BarCamp is an international network of innovators who have created a new forum of user-generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants — often focusing on early-stage web applications and related open source technologies, social media, and open data formats.
Over 5 years, over 1,200 people and 75 sponsors have participated in BarCamp Miami.
Become a Sponsor!
We are looking for sponsors and donors. The sponsorship rate is a flat $250. Donors may contribute any amount of their choosing. Please use the Eventbrite form for sponsorship and donations. Your contribution will support a well-loved event which fosters the growth of technology in South Florida.
We will give a full accounting of BarCamp costs and revenues during BarCamp, to maintain transparency.
Please get in touch with me if you would like to help organize BarCamp Miami.
Want to know more about BarCamp? In a few words,
BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees.
BarCamp is a free-wheeling discussion of new products, services and ideas. It lets people meet other people who understand the new technology and what it means for Miami’s future.
BarCamp spotlights new technology products and provides an opportunity to spread the word via blogs, podcasts, photoblogs and word of mouth.
It’s not your traditional talking heads technology conference. Everyone is expected to participate in some way: by giving a talk, asking questions, or organizing a session.
BarCamp foster collaborations matching technologists with designers, with engineers and with angel investors.Be sure to tell them Soul Of Miami sent you! Click here to sign up for the Soul Of Miami email list.
