BarCamp London XII

BarCamp London returns spring 2020.

A free-to-attend day-long unconference for designers, developers and geeks of all types at Goldsmiths, University of London.

An event for the London tech community from Proactive and Hacksmiths.

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!

Tickets are free and will go live towards the end of January 2020.

Made possible thanks to

Proactive Paul Hacksmiths
