Saturday, April 2, 2011 from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM (EDT)
BarCamp Orlando is Saturday April 2nd at Wall Street Plaza starting at 9:30 AM! If you want a T-shirt and a speaking slot I highly recommend you come early (as in before 11 AM). We always seem to run out of both as the day progresses.
Thanks to our friends at CoLab Orlando, they're allowing use of their parking lot! If you print out and placethis flyer on your dash, you'll be able to use their parking lot all day. If that lot is full when you arrive, there are plenty other lots around wall street. You should expect to pay $12-$15 for the full day (FYI).
If you plan to present with slides, please bring the proper VGA adapter for your laptop and do not depend on / expect any wifi. Also please try to ensure your talk does not go too far beyond the 20 minute mark. Each talk slot will be on the hour and half hour, allowing for a little time for questions (5 mins) and for foot traffic (5 mins).
The board will open for talk signups at 9:30 AM and the first talks will start at 10 AM.
We'll have the same venues this year as last, with Singapours (AKA. Envy Labs Room), One Eye'd Jacks (AKA. ad summos room), Gibson Showroom (AKA. Tropo Room), and the Globe will be open for round table discussions (no projector).
If you want to help setup (which mostly means unload chairs), feel free to come hang out around 9 AM.
Orlando's biggest pillow fight will also be this saturday, at 5 PM downtown. If you want to be a part of the madness bring your pillow. The location of the event will be announced this evening at Midnight, but I've been told it's walking distance from BarCamp.
Here is the Schedule for Saturday (right off the website)
9:30 am Doors open, people can sign up for talks on the big whiteboard.
10:00 am Talks start. There are three rooms for presentations, and each presentation will have 25 minutes and they will be spaced out. We recommend that you limit your talks to about 20 minutes to allow 5 minutes for discussion (and incase you run long).
12:00 pm Lunch is served (free), we take an hour break.
1:00 pm Talks resume.
6:00 pm BarCamp ends and the after-party starts at Baby Grands!
See you guys this Saturday!
