Bar Camp St. Louis, a stealth micro-unconference?

Published under Technology

Today I stumbled across the web evidence of Bar Camp St. Louis (Flickr stream, Facebook group) , a software / social networking flavored “unconference”.

St. Louis Code Camp, May 5 2007

Published under Business,Presentations

It’s time for the second (annual) St. Lous Code Camp on May 5, 2007. There’s no actual camping (unlike some other ___ camps out there), just one day of sessions. Think of it as a mini-conference. See Brian’s announcement for more details. If you’ve been thinking of giving user group talks and never gotten around […]
