BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees. The event doesn't cost any money, but there is a price: all attendees must give a demo, a session, or help with one. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn are welcome and invited to join. When you come, be prepared to share with barcampers. When you leave, be prepared to share it with the world.
Here are some of the topics that were discussed at last year's BarCampNYC:
Saturday June 29th from 10am to 6pm
1290 Avenue of the Americas (6th Ave and 52nd St)
