It’s that time of year again….July 12th & July 13th will kick off BarCampNola 7!
What Is BarCampNola?
To sum it up, BarCampNola is a yearly “unconference” that brings passionate people together to share what they love with the community. While it initially started off with a more tech focus, the event has grown into more than that and welcomes anybody who wants to discuss their favorite topics or subject matter. BarCampNola takes place over the course of two days. Day one is full of workshops about a variety of topics. Day two is the “project day” where the entire group gets together to build something useful for the community. (More below.)
Can I Present?
Have you been to BarCampNola before and seen people present on exciting topics? Are you thinking about presenting this year? Well let me answer this for you….YES! YES YOU SHOULD! And in the words of the Water Boy “YOU CAN DO IT!” You can prepare a topic before hand or you can get up that day and talk about whatever you want. Presentation slots are sliced up into 15, 30, or 45 mins increments.

Day 2 "Build Day Kart Day!"
After the excitement of the first day, be sure to join us Sunday as we reinvent the traditional "hack day" as a "build day." Like previous years, day two will bring talented individuals from all disciplines together to work on a single project. Not a builder? That's okay! No matter what you specialize in there will be a way to contribute. Join us. Join a team. Meet the community and build, decorate and race a motorized kart against other teams. We'll be back at the Tulane Bogg's Center for this event.
Special Event: Day 1 Mario Kart Tournament
Think you've got serious Mario Kart skills? We're running a Mario Kart tournement all day during the first day of BarCampNOLA this year. The winner will take home a brand new Wii U with three extra controllers and a copy of Mario Kart 8.
Saturday, after the main event, starting at 5:30 we will be hosting the afterparty at Phillips Bar! We've reserved the courtyard, bought some snacks, and have a keg of free beer! It's right down the street from BarCampNola at 733 Cherokee Street (corner Maple) so come join us!
