BarcampLA 3.0 Is This Weekend
I'm not involved in putting it together, but it's amazing to see that rad people like Heather, Crystal, Jason, and Jennifer have been infected with the Barcampy spirit and have decided to make it happen. It's a sign of a truly healthy geek community here in LA that none of the original organizers are involved and the event is still going strong with new organizers, new sponsors, and a whole bunch of new names on the attendee list.
If you don't know, Barcamp is
...an ad-hoc un-conference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees.
All attendees must give a demo, a session, or help with one. All presentions are scheduled the day they happen. Prepare in advance, but come early to get a slot on the wall.
Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.
It's a great atmosphere to meet really interesting people in LA, and the conversations are almost always intense and thought-provoking.
So check it out if you're a geek in LA, on or your way down to ETech in San Diego next week.
