BarCamp Canberra is an ‘unconference’ that thrives on audience participation – if you attend, you’re encouraged to present, facilitate a discussion, or contribute in any other way you can (e.g. asking questions, volunteer to run the registration desk etc).
Past BarCamp Canberra events have had presentations on everything from the future of books, accessibility, robots, puppetry, science communication, lasers, gov 2.0, introductory tutorials to in-depth technical presentations. Recorded talks from earlier BarCamp Canberra events are available or check out earlier BarCamp Canberra presentations on slideshare.
If this is your first BarCamp, we encourage you to submit a talk or discussion that you’re passionate about. BarCamp is a great opportunity for new speakers to break into public speaking, and for existing speakers to practice their craft and try new material.
As is traditional BarCamp style, the schedule will be decided the morning of the event. Sessions will be approximately 20 minutes in length. Participants will be invited to write their talks down and place them in our schedule at their preferred time at the time of registration.
