It is BarCamp in Sydney this Saturday. I haven't been to one of these unconference style events before, but I've heard good things about it from my colleagues. I'm quite excited to go along and see what it is like.
If you're in Sydney and interested in stopping by, details are as follows:
When: Sat 25th August 2007 from about 9am
Where: University of Technology, Sydney (Jones St entrance)
One of the novel aspects of BarCamp is that all participants are encouraged to present or start a discussion around something that interests them. For my part, depending on what people are interested in, I was thinking of one of the following:
- new stuff in the .net space (C# 3.0, .NET 3.5, LINQ, WPF, WCF, etc) and showing some demos
- giving a bit of a Ruby/JRuby introduction with help from Ola's JavaBin slides
- or, if people are keen, a discussion around JRuby vs C# 3 vs Java vs ?? and their stacks for different situations and problems
By the way, the conference is free, and it is not too late to sign up 🙂
Hope to see you there!
