BarCamp MediaCity

The team visited the BBC hosted BarCamp Media City last weekend. Great venue, good range of talks.

Particular faves were Patrick Robinson taking about the benefits of using the Lean Startup method and the Hodge talking about an event (think startups) involving hack days, lean methods and VC investment.

You can read an interview with Ian Forrester to find more about the aims of the event.

Open Labs are one of the sponsors of the upcoming Barcamp Media City in Salford. 

If you have never been to a BarCamp before this is your chance to experience one and then perhaps run one yourself.  Barcamp's are great fun always attract a varied and interesting range of folk.  The key thing to remember about a Barcamp, it's all about the people.

In essence a BarCamp is a group of enthusiastic people who gather to share their knowledge about technology and anything else they are interested in. They do this by attending presentations given by other attendees – and giving presentations themselves too. Presentations can be as formal or informal as you like. You can go to any session you like, and if you don’t find a session interesting, you can leave and go to another. Everyone is encouraged to give a session or participate in whatever way they can. When sessions aren’t running, there’s usually other fun stuff happening: food and drink, games, conversation, silliness, and people hacking on projects. Don’t be afraid, join in.  There’s always lots of good stuff going on at BarCamp and you're guarnateed a great time.
