Unlike traditional conferences, the schedule for sessions at a BarCamp are decided by the participants. After the opening talk on Saturday, you’ll have a chance to go fill out the schedule grid.
Pick a topic to talk about – you can talk about absolutely anything, previous events have included sessions on HTML, version control and advanced programming techniques all the way to baking and making the perfect cup of tea! Once you’ve decided on a subject, take a card and place it in your chosen time slot. There are 5 sessions going on at any one time and 8 time slots for sessions (totalling 40 talks), so try and guess how popular your talk might be, and pick a suitable room. Ours will fit anywhere from 12 to 60!
