What is it? 

BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is a dual networking and knowledge-building opportunity that brings people in the media, tech, entrepreneurial, and design communities together. BarCamp Lexington is part of the In2Lex "April Is Technology Month" events series.

*BarCamp has nothing to do with bars (well, maybe after the event). For name origins, see BarCamp history. For a peek at other events, see Austin and Nashville.
