Harrisburg University of Science and Technology will host BarCamp Harrisburg from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, April 10. The ad-hoc “unconference” will be filled with open, participatory events, discussions, and workshops where presentation content is provided by the participants rather than chosen speakers. The topics for this year’s BarCamp Harrisburg will be the Web with a track on education.
Attendance is free for those who register, but space is limited, so register early online at http://www.facebook.com/l/0b1fb;www.barcamphbg.org/what-is-barcamp/
Attendees arrive around 9-10 am, have breakfast, network, and post topics they would like to discuss on a schedule board (we’ll have markers and paper available to post topics). Following a brief kick-off meeting with the entire group, 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.
