Barcamp Auckland

It’s time to register for Barcamp.



The fifth annual Barcamp Auckland unconference will be held on the 16th July at Botany Downs Secondary College.

What you need to know:

Define “Barcamp”: Sort of like a conference, but not. AKA “unconference” because instead of having a schedule of presentations set by the organisers, at a Barcamp the attendees organise the schedule and it’s generally more discussion the presentation. Basically, at a barcamp everyone should be participating in the conversation.

You can submit talk topics under the broad categories of – “HTML5”, Native OS eg. iOS, Android, WP7, Mac, Windows, Design/UI, Productivity/Getting Things Done, or miscellaneous.

The guy behind the Auckland Barcamp is Ludwig Wendzich.

Who goes? You will find developers, hackers, sys admins, makers, teachers, technologists, users, all sorts.

The awesome sponsors who make these possible:

  • InternetNZ, platinum sponsor
  • Shift and Microsoft, gold sponsors
  • Webstock, Pixelfusion and Valentine Addis, silver sponsors
