We've got a date and a venue for BarCamp RDU 2009, so mark your calendars:
BarCamp RDU 2009 - August 8 at Red Hat headquarters in Raleigh, NC
More information and registration coming soon...
There's no venue yet, but Barcamp Charlotte is coming up soon. I think it's gonna be well worth the three hour drive from Raleigh to Charlotte so I just signed up.
Registration is free. All you have to do is to sign up for an account at BarCampCharlotte.com and you'll be registered as an attendee. The site is running Buddypress, the Wordpress-based social networking suite, so you can setup a profile and socialize with the other attendees. See also:
BarCamp RDU 2008 is one week from today and it's shaping up the be the biggest and I hope the best BarCamp RDU so far.
Here are a couple of notes for attendees:
Check the attendee list! On July 21, we decided we had budget and space to register everybody on the waiting list. If you were on the waiting list you are now registered to attend.
Remove yourself if you can't attend. If you registered but cannot make it, please remove your name from the list. For planning purposes, we need to have as accurate a count as is possible.
Propose sessions in advance. If you are interested in initiating or attending a session on a specific topic, then go right ahead and add your topic to the Proposed Sessions list.
Oh, and if you are interested in helping out with preparations or on the day of the event, then please let us know (dave.johnson at rollerweblogger.org or wayne at wayne-sutton.com)
And one final note. BarCamp RDU would not be possible without the very generous financial support of our sponsors and our host. So...
See you next Saturday at BarCamp RDU 2008!
Just a gentle reminder that BarCamp RDU 2008 is coming soon. And one request. We've got 209 people registered and 31 on the waiting list so please help us out and if you registered but cannot make it, please remove your name from the list.
If you are interested in helping out with preparations or on the day of the event, then please let us know (dave.johnson at rollerweblogger.org or wayne at wayne-sutton.com)
