Registrations are open for Barcamp Canberra 2014. Head on over to Eventbrite to sign up.
Returning for its 7th year, Barcamp will bring together a great bunch of smart people who are ready to share ideas and learn from each other.
A couple of things to note about Barcamp this year. We’ve been thinking about how to make lunch work for everyone without becoming expensive and forcing a ticket price to cover costs. Instead of doing spending lots and pleasing few, we think it will be better to let you make your own choices. Closer to the event we’ll provide some information on nearby places where you can find food. There is a good selection of places nearby. Or of course you can BYO. We might event look at some ways to group people together to keep things social.
We will provide fresh fruit for morning tea, and the cupcake competition will (hopefully) provide afternoon tea. There is are boiling/chilled water dispensers throughout the library. You’re welcome to bring along a mug and your favourite tea.
It also looks like we won’t be providing free coffee this year – but there is a cafe in the library that opens at 10am, and some nearby cafes that are open early. More info on these later when we give you tips on places to find lunch. There is still an outside chance we can find a way to provide free coffee – we are exploring a few options. Stay tuned.
And remember we are at a new venue this year – the Gungahlin Library. We’ll post more info about this in the next week or two, but its worth noting that we are moving away from the Civic in 2014.
