Tomorrow I am attending my first ever BarCamp. I signed up for it without really understanding exactly what I was getting myself into, but I recognized a Twitter colleague, Ann Leaness, on the 'attending' list, so I signed up.
It turns out I might be in for a treat!
So what is a 'BarCamp?' I guess it can best be described as an 'unconference' conference. Attendees meet at 8am and post possible forum/panel discussions and then rooms are assigned and the discussion begins. It goes until 6pm, with attendees from all walks of life converging with the sole purpose of conversation an networking.
I will be updating my blog and Twitter with events and experiences of the day.
The hashtag is: #bcphilly
