It has been 10 years since the first BarCamp was held in Palo Alto, CA. Since then, BarCamps have been held in over 350 cities around the world, in North America, South America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Australasia and Asia.

Now at its sixth edition, we are proud to say BarCamp Miami got even better in every way.

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 fosters collaboration — matching technologists with designers, with engineers, and with angel investors. BarCamp brings people together who understand what new technology means for Miami’s future.

Get Ready as Dragons Invade Virginia Key

Miami Dragon Boat Festival

Dragons will once again invade the City of Miami’s waters as the Miami International Dragon Boat Festival returns to the Miami Rowing Club on Virginia Key. This event is a great opportunity for groups to come together and participate in a fun-filled day of competitive racing.

Often dubbed as a “canoe on steroids”, dragon boats are 42’ in length and don a traditional dragon head and tail. Dating back more than 2,000 years, this ancient Chinese pastime has captured the attention of the competitive sporting world, making it the second fastest growing water sport.

The festival is currently seeking participants! No experience or gear necessary- just grab twenty (20) friends or coworkers, a paddle and go!

Teams for the Miami International Dragon Boat Festival can be formed by companies, bringing employees together for a day of fun competition and team building. Other teams can come from educational institutions, civic and community organizations, gyms, families and friends etc. This event is open to participants of all sizes and abilities, ages 13 and up. Prior experience is not necessary, practice sessions and equipment will be provided to registered teams. Dragon boat racing supports camaraderie, fitness, competition and a lesson on the ultimate goal of reaching the finish line together!

Attendance to the event is free and open to the public. Registration fees vary based on team category.

Don’t miss out on this cultural experience and a day of fun!
