DCampSouth, the unconference for everyone interested in design and user experience, is this Saturday!
Now, with more folksonomy!
* DCampSouth is opening with a keynote by Thomas Vander Wal! We’re very excited that Thomas has agree to kick things off for us — Thomas is an expert on the interaction of people and information, and is particularly interested in social tagging and information re-use.
* DCamp is all about great discussions, and anyone can start one. We’re going to invite everyone who attends to propose a session and add it to the schedule on Saturday morning. No PowerPoints are necessary, and you don’t even have to prepare any material to propose a discussion.
* DCampSouth is FREE!
What’s a Bar Camp?
A BarCamp is an unconference where people interested in a wide range of technologies come together to teach and learn. Unfamiliar with the un-conference format? Here’s the idea in a nutshell. Rather than having scheduled speakers, everyone pitches sessions the morning of the BarCamp. Those sessions are put on a schedule, and lots of little groups form for intense group learning. Everyone is expected to teach, to talk, to participate. Yeah, it’s different from a regular conference – but it works!
