Barcamp Canberra – this Saturday!

Just a few days now before a great day of ideas and information sharing at Barcamp Canberra 2013.

If you can’t make it, let us know!

Barcamp Canberra is sold out, and there are people on the waiting list hoping to get in.

If you can’t make it for some reason, please let us know and we will give your spot to someone else. You can cancel your ticket here or send an email to


Don’t forget, we are at a new venue this year at the University of Canberra Inspire Centre.

Building 25, University of Canberra/Pantowora St, Bruce ACT 2617


  • Registrations start at 9:30 with the first session starting at 10:00.
  • There are five 20 minute sessions in the morning, with lunch and cupcakes at 12:35.
  • The last session finishes at about 4pm, followed by lightening talks and the end of day gathering.
  • Ruth and Gavin will do a “Barcamp for newbies” session at the start of the day – this is a great way to begin your day if you are new to Barcamp and not sure where to start.


We are providing a lunch of pizza and (hopefully) sushi. There will be a little bit of soft drink to share, and lots of water. We will also have fresh fruit available.

If you have special dietary needs, we humbly suggest you bring your own lunch.


Acidlabs (one of our great supporters) has lined up espresso coffee which should provide at least one coffee for everyone (maybe 2). Feel free to bring your own mug or cup.


The venue has chilled filtered water, and we will have watering points at a few points in the venue. Feel free to bring your own water bottle.

Post-event drinks

After the event, we will head to the nearby Zierholz bar for some further great discussions

Recording talks

We hope to equip two rooms with audio and video recorders to capture the ideas from the day. At this stage, we don’t intend to livestream any talks. One room will be recording free for people who prefer to go that way.


The hashtag for this year is bccbr2013. Feel free to use this for photos to flickr or youtube videos too.
