Save the date for Barcamp Canberra – March 15, 2014

We have a venue, and can announce that Barcamp Canberra 2014 will take place on March 15 at Gungahlin Library.

More details to come in the next week or two. Make sure you follow us on Twitter or join the mailing list using the form at the right of this page.

In keeping with the Unconference style, we are keeping things pretty lean this year. Its all about having a great community of people on the day. If you want to get involved, we will need some on the day helpers and of course, you can always channel your energy into running a session.

If you are interested in sponsoring, please get in touch. Most sponsors chip in between $100 and $500 which goes toward food and drink. We are also considering micro sponsorship with stickers or tshirts as a reward. Leave a comment below if you would be interested in this option.

We are considering not providing lunch this year. There are quite a few good lunch options near the venue, and it means that people can have a better selection to suit their diet. Lunch also tends to be the most difficult part of the day in terms of pleasing people and arranging logistics.  Happy to take comments on this too – especially if you have ideas about how lunch can be a continuation of the event rather than an interruption.

We also intend for Cupcake Camp to return again for 2014. We are looking for prizes and judges.

  1. An early instance of crowdsourcing was recorded in the New Testament as the Feeding of the 5,000. This form of crowdsourcing is still practised widely and is called “bring a plate”. Perhaps Barcamp could crowdsource lunch where each person who intends to bring something electronically “puts up their plate” before the event.
