An international movement of “Un-Conferences”.
It’s a day long event were every one who attends
It’s an opportunity to learn, present, meet people and
contribute to the design community in Melbourne.
Presentations can be as long or as short as you want
(typically 20-30 mins).
Who can attend? Any one! Not just UX designers.
Barcamps work better with a theme but as long as you have
something to present or talk about every one is welcome.
What is Barcamp?
How, when & where?
How does it work? It’s self organising. Attendees choose a slot on
“The Wall”; a grid of presentation spaces and times on the day , this
forms the schedule. Barcamps can be huge (500 people), more
typical 20 to 30. This means over 20 presentations to choose from
on the day! (in London we had 30 people attend)
When would it happen? A Saturday some time in July. We would need
time to organise and promote the event as well as give people time
to prepare a talk or presentation.
Where would it happen? In the DT offices Melbourne. We would use
the Sand box and other meeting rooms for presentation spaces and
utilise other spaces depending on how many people turn up.
