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.
