What is BarCamp Barnsley?
BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees.
If you’re a creative, digital freak, geek or entrepreneur you’ll love it.
Attendees arrive on the day armed with talks and decide which ones they want to go along to! The talks can be on anything, from android application development to learning the British Sign Language to new trends in Drupal.
But don’t worry, you don’t have to do a talk to participate! The event is paid for by our lovely sponsors, who will keep you well fed throughout the day starting with breakfast and give you free wifi access and use of projectors etc.
BarCamp Barnsley is being supported by Enterprising Barnsley, Digital Media Centre Barnsley and is being sponsored by bmedia,

Register for tickets – numbers are limited so book as soon as you can. If for any reason you are unable to attend let the organizers know as soon as possible so we can allocate tickets to those who have registered.
