Yep, BarCamp is coming to Australia.
BarCamp is more of a sandbox than a conference and often referred to as
an 'unconference'. BarCamp is essentially a think-tank/sandbox for all
that is web development oriented. Whether you're interested in designing
for the web, a taxonomy geek, intrigued by the semantic web or in any
other way interested in all that is web development check out BarCamp
because it's probably right down your alley, and coming to a city near
you on the 3rd and 4th of March, 2007!
Being an unconference, we organise the venue, logistics and otherwise
provide a friendly sandbox for attendees to collaborate and share
knowledge, ideas and innovations regard web technologies. Every attendee
must be prepared to present something for au good 10-15 minutes, either
individually or as a group. You, along with the other attendees make
BarCamp what you want it to be. You can shuffle off into interest groups
with all AJAX hackers in one room whilst the semantics chaps in another
-- it's up to you.
The dis-organisers might also have arranged live-feed connections to the
other BarCamps in neighbouring cities, happening as part of the
inaugural BarCampAustralia and possibly even overseas as well.
For an overview of what's happening take a look at
