Barcamp Auckland 4
Date: Saturday, July 17, 2010
Time: 8:00am – 5:00pm
Location: Botany Downs College, Botany, Auckland
Barcamp Auckland is the Auckland chapter of an initiative to bring together creatives, technologists, scientists, programmers, and bloggers – and let them engage in discussions about new ideas from their respective fields. This will be the fourth Barcamp in Auckland, and there will be presentations and discussions on web technologies, operating systems, design and user interfaces, productivity and a whole lot more.
Barcamp is like a conference, but it’s also not. There are ideas and keynotes, but the level of interactions and discussions are far more intimate and allow for more room to expand and develop conversations away from just a brand’s message points. As Erica O’Grady, the self-proclaimed number 1 Erica on Google, has said ‘At a traditional conference the best ideas originate in the hallways and corridors. Barcamp is all corridor.’
The Social Media NZ team are going to be making a presence at Barcamp Auckland 4 this Saturday. We will be live blogging, tweeting, videoing/photoing, analyzing, and plain old reporting about all the different technology speakers an event like Barcamp brings together.
