BarCamp Cork IV On November 20th

conor 10th of November 2010 by conor

We all know that Cork makes the finest BarCamps of them all :-) Now it’s time for BarCamp Cork IV, in 3D. Or, actually, in Webworks, the site of the first and second BCCs.

November 20th

If you love technology and startups and want to share, talk or learn, come on down. It’s free and no-one will try to sell you anything.

It looks like we’ll have the first two BizCamps in Ireland in very quick succession in March. These are unconferences in the style of BarCamp but focussed on business rather than tech.

Kicking off the day after FOWA, the first BizCamp is in the Digital Hub in Dublin on March 7th. All details over on the site. Now if only I could decipher their tagline!

The second one is in the University of Limerick on March 21st. It is being held in the new Kemmy Business school, from 9.30am to 4pm.

In both cases, as with all *Camps, they only work if YOU make them work. So get on over and offer to help out.

BarCamp Cork II on November 1st

conor 30th of September 2008 by conor

It has been over two years since the last one, but BarCamp is finally coming back to Cork. It’s soon, very soon, only four weeks away. The venue is the lovely Webworks building in the City Centre, just like the last time.

We have a strong vision for this event and we need your help to make it happen on the day. Please read the first set of posts and give us your feedback. If you think you’ll be attending, please register. As always with BarCamps, it is completely free with the costs being taken care of by our kind sponsors.

If you wish to sponsor or help, please read the “what we need” post.

We have two mottos for BarCampCork II “talking with, not talking at” and “less talking, more doing”.

If you don’t know what a BarCamp/Unconference is or have never attended one, here is a simple description from the main BarCamp site:

BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering 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 participants.

Every attendee of BarCamp is expected to contribute in some way. That doesn’t necessarily mean you have to give a talk. But at the very least, you should take part in lots of the discussions that occur and share the knowledge you have in your area of expertise.

We’d love to see you down in Cork and we encourage anyone based outside of Ireland who reads Web2Ireland to consider flying in for the day.

Sign-up now.

BarCamp Cork II ?

conor 18th of July 2008 by conor

As many of you know, the first BarCamp in Ireland was held wayyyy back in September 2006 in Cork. It is still remembered as a wonderful day and I met many of the people I now know well for the first time there. Since that event in Webworks there have been further ones in Waterford, Dublin, Galway, Belfast, Kilkenny and Limerick.

Recently it was suggested to me that we have another one in Cork in January. I lobbed the idea out at an OpenCoffee to discover that there was tons of pent-up demand for a BarCamp and that January was too far away.

A further conversation with John Handelaar at the hugely successful and very barcampy OpenCoffeeClub BBQ got me all jizzed up about having one sooner too.

The next BarCamp is PodCamp II in Kilkenny on September 27th so I’d like to propose the next Cork one for the November timeframe. Sufficiently long after PodCamp but not too close to Christmas.

Please use the PollDaddy poll below to indicate levels of interest and, if it is there, I’m sure we can arrange something down here :-)

UPDATE: I can’t see how to edit a poll after it is published but one great suggestion has been made, which is to offer “Any Saturday in November” as an option. If that’s what you’d prefer, just enter it in “Other”
