What is BarCamp?
BarCamp (oft uncoference) is gathering of users with public workshops and lectures, their content and progress were developed by participants at the beginning of the meeting and are developed at futher progress. BarCamp used to share ideas, to discuss, for learning and develop and the product of that work can already be seen in part at the end of the event with demonstrating concrete results (eg joint workshop program).
BarCamp name is an allusion to a series of events organized by Tim O’Reily, who called FooCamp. Selected individuals (friends of O’Reilly) would meet for mutal exchange of experience, and would stay and spend the night (camping). Participants in FooCamp could only come at the invitation of the O’Reilly’s. At BarCamp is coming without an invitation, and everyone can participate.
The first BarCamp was held in Palo Alto (CA) of 19-21. August 2005 in the premises of the company Socialtex and was organized in less then a week, from concept to the event. On it was attended by about 200 people. After that’s BarCamp are organized over 350 cities around the world, North America, South America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Australia and Asia.
To mark the first anniversary of BarCamp, a BarCampEarth held simultaneosly at several locations in the world from 25-27. August 2006. Marking the second anniversary, BarCampBlock was held in Palo Alto at the original location within a radius of more than three blocks of 18-19. August 2007, and it was attended by over 800 people.
