Freelance Camp PRO San Francisco 2010 is a new twist on the established series of BarCamps for freelancers and independent contractors. If you are or plan on being a PRO at running your business, this event is for you. Trade notes and network with your peers, learn how to run your business better, and get cool free stuff. And, it’s right downtown at the brand-spanking new NextSpace San Francisco, right at 2nd and Market.
Past attendees told us “I became a better designer, coder and business woman in the course of one day.” Another said, “I realized that I am not alone in some of my concerns and insecurities related to marketing myself.” A third attendee told us, “I had many opportunities to share my experience and ideas regarding design, e-commerce, sales and marketing, pricing structures, balancing work and family…etc.” So, its gonna be pretty extraordinary.
Some of the topics we imagine might surface (just to prime the pump). Of course, you the attendee will chose the topics on the day of the conference:
You ask: Wait, what is a Barcamp? BarCamp is an international network of user generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants. The day consists of sessions proposed by attendees and the schedule is created on site the morning of the event. BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn from each other in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from participants. Visit www.freelancecamp.org for more info.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT FREELANCE CAMP PRO:
The day will start at 8am with an hour of socializing over coffee and pastries. We will be handing out cool swag to registrants at the sign up. It is really important you arrive by 9am so you can participate in creating the day’s agenda. At 9am sharp we will begin introductions, explain the rules of barcamp and then we will create a schedule. We will be harvesting the minds and expertise of all the people in the room to come up with topics pertinent to freelancers.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT FREELANCE CAMP PRO:
Breakfast, Lunch and light snacks are included with the day's event. Lunch will be held in the first floor of the same building at Bindi SF, the delicious Indian restaurant in the very same building. View their lunch menu here.
We will also be holding an after party at Dada SF.
