BarCamp DC is an ad-hoc unconference and is part of the larger BarCamp movement. While there are topics suggested for discussion, there is no set agenda until everyone gathers. Attendees are required to participate to some degree: either by leading a discussion, showing a demo, or by creating another type of collaborative session.
We've decided to shake things up a bit and have added three variable to shape the experience:
- Powerpoint is BANNED. That means NO SLIDES. This variable is meant to encourage active conversation rather than passive presentations.
- Sessions must focus on something you're passionate about.
- We've created a Twitter Swear Jar - each time you reference Twitter in a session you will have to contribute $1 as a common donation to the Capital Area Food Bank. Feel free to abuse this rule - one dollar can serve 5 meals!
