What is Barcamp?

Barcamp Harrisburg is an ad-hoc unconference where, rather than have preset speakers like a traditional conference, it's the attendees that propose the discussion topics, present their expertise, or organize participatory events or workshops. BarcampHbg's focus is the web, social media, interactive design, development, and education. Some presentations are prepared beforehand, whereas others can be completely spontaneous. Both are welcome. For more on the history of barcamps, check out BarCamp.org or Wikipedia's definition of BarCamp.

2014 marks Harrisburg's 6th year! We had nearly 250 attendees in 2013, and are hoping to exceed that this year!

What will BarCamp Harrisburg be like?

Attendees arrive between 9-10 am, have breakfast (light refreshments provided), network, and post topics they would like to discuss on a schedule board. Following a brief kick-off meeting, the day will consist of sessions broken down into 45-minute blocks. There will be a break for lunch, followed by afternoon sessions that will run until around 5 pm.

BarCamp Harrisburg will be held at Harrisburg University's 16-story campus in downtown Harrisburg. Wireless Internet access and projectors will be available.

BarCamp Harrisburg is organized by Steve Infanti and Rich Hauck.
