BarCamp comes to Cork
30 October 2008 | 0
The latest in the BarCamp series of events will be taking place in Cork on 1 November.
The BarCamp conferences are free, open and informal events where the attendees and the speakers are one and the same and, as a group, they choose the topics that interest them. Webworks in Cork was the birthplace of Irish Barcamp events and the conference returns there after touring Ireland for the past two years with events in Belfast, Dublin, Galway, Waterford and Kilkenny.
The BarCamp conference this year will see a mixture of talks and sessions. The talks cover everything from investment during tough times to copyright and intellectual property rights, sales techniques, workshops on programming, new management trends, careers in New Media and other sessions to be democratically decided on the day. Other sessions include a discussion on how to get one of the attending companies into the mainstream press using the media experience of people attending. Developers will also gather to build a Web application for monitoring carbon footprints and have it running by the end of the day.
BarCamp Cork is free to attend but people must register at http://www.barcampcork.com/
