BarCampSydney5

Do not forget that BarCampSydney5 (#bcs5), the recession edition, is on Saturday 27 June 2009.

BarCamp is an ad-hoc unconference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment”. BarCamp is an intense community event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to participate.

The BarCamp motto is: No spectators, only participants.

According to Jodie Miners, one of the un-organisers, there’s over 170 people registered to attend, lots of great sponsors and a great new venue.

Apparently Jodie’s planning a talk on her current passion, Google Wave, & is hoping that a bunch of people will get together to do a super session on Google Wave.

I’m thinking of doing something about Twitter Apps – the good, bad & indifferent or maybe something else (depends how I feel).

There’s lots more – come along and check it out.
