Just a short reminder

BarCamp - Saturday 11th June 2016

Free-of-charge to attend - full day - 10:00 - 17:30

Registration now open!

What is a bar camp? A bar camp is a conference where what happens is
organised by the delegates on the day. The event organisers have to
arrange something, the main one being the venue, but the rest is down to
the delegates. So all the hassle of talk submissions, review and
scheduling is taken away.

Typically at the start of the day everyone gets up in turn and says who
they are, what their interests are and what they’d like to do. Based on
this people write proposals on PostIt notes and stick these on a board.

A moderator may read out the proposals in turn to gauge interest, and if
sufficient the proposal will be put on a scheduling board. Delegates may
adjust this to avoid clashes etc.

Experience shows that this format results in high quality sessions
focussed on what delegates want.

There is no charge to attend. Everyone should be able to afford to
attend and as it is a one-day event you will not need to incur
accommodation costs, though there are several hotels nearby for anyone
who wishes to stay over.

Refreshments, tea, coffee & biscuits will be provided morning and
afternoon, and Lunch will also be provided.
