What is BarCamp?

BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. BarCampSaskatoon08 is open to all who love technology as a place to talk and to learn.


Where and When?

BarCampSaskatoon08 will take place on Thursday September 25th, 2008 at The Cellar. The Cellar is an ambient and very cool conference room in the basement of the Senator Hotel (243 21st Street East). There are two small conference rooms (one holds about 35 people and one about 25 people), a learning lounge, pool table room and “beverage station.” Internet access is available and has been upgraded from last year. Projectors will be donated. Bring your gadgets: laptop, mobile, camera, laser pointer, whatever.


BarCampSaskatoon08 is part of National Digital Media Day. BarCamps will take place for 24 hours across the whole country and around the world. We will be able to see sessions from other locations and broadcast ours via uStream.tv.


Winston's will serve us food and drinks, we will work toward getting dedicated service.

BarCampSaskatoon08: What's this all about?

BarCamp is an ad-hoc unconference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.


When you come, be prepared to share with barcampers.


~ A bit About participation

Attendees must give a demo, a session, or help with one, or otherwise volunteer / contribute in some way to support the event. All presentations are scheduled the day they happen. Prepare in advance, but come early to get a slot on the wall. The people present at the event will select the demos or presentations they want to see. Presenters are responsible for making sure that notes/slides/audio/video of their presentations are published on the web for the benefit of all and those who can’t be present.


The Rules of Bar Camp

  • 1st Rule: You do talk about Bar Camp.
  • 2nd Rule: You do blog about Bar Camp.
  • 3rd Rule: If you want to present, you must write your topic and name in a presentation slot and on this wiki.
  • 4th Rule: As many presentations at a time as facilities allow for.
  • 5th Rule: No pre-scheduled presentations, no tourists.
  • 6th Rule: Presentations will go on as long as they have to or until they run into another presentation slot (45 minute sessions are scheduled this year).
  • 7th Rule: If this is your first time at BarCamp, you HAVE to present. (Ok, you don't really HAVE to, but try to find someone to present with, or at least ask questions and be an interactive participant.)
