The BarCamp organizers came together and decided: this one won’t be an ordinary BarCamp. We have undertaken steps to make sure, that this one is the most useful BarCamps we’ve had so far. Here’s what you should know:
a/ The timetable for the Big Hall and the two workshop rooms will be fixed and published before the BarCamp. We’re working with special guests to make the workshops as interesting and useful, as possible.
b/ All the presentations on both days will be 20 minutes long with 10 minute breaks in between to enable people to find their next presentation to watch and will give time for presenters to set up their equipment.
c/ This may sound controversial but we decided against censoring presentations, which have advertising components. This is because we found it very hard to do administratively, as well as because it is hard to objectively judge which presentations should be allowed and which should be stopped. Also, the ‘vote with your feet’ approach holds and if people don’t mind wasting 20 minutes of their lives watching advertisiment, so be it.
d/ First in first out principle for T-shirts works this year, because we’re not sure there will be enough T-shirts for everyone. So if you’re really keen on getting one of our awesome T-shirts, make sure to register and come to BarCamp sooner, rather than later.
e/ We discussed a lot of other thing, but don’t want to bore you. If you have questions, fire ahead, make use of that commenting space below.
