What is DemoCamp?
DemoCamp started as a way for Toronto's entrepreneurial designers, developers, and technologists to get together on a monthly basis and showcase what they had been working on.
It's a social event for people who are starting new software, web and mobile companies. The idea was to celebrate all of the world-class companies and projects happening in Toronto.
How do I present?
Everyone who wants to present must submit an application. We are looking for submissions that :
- inspires us;
- challenges our notions of software, user experience, business models, funding sources;
- something that is not derivative or a copy (if you're thinking "we're the next YouTube/Facebook/MySpace/TagCloud/TechCrunch" - DemoCamp might not be a good fit).
The goal is to find projects, people, applications and companies that will inspire, challenge or educate people who have seen the latest and greatest on the web and around the world.
At DemoCamp, presentations are limited to 5 minutes. You get 5 minutes on stage to convey your revolutionary ideas in either a demo or an Ignite presentation.
Demos are limited to 2 slides and showing functional code or a lightning talk that is a presentation with auto-advancing slides. Ignite presentations are 20 slides by 15 seconds per slide (total 5 minutes).
