BarCamp is an ad-hoc "un-conference" 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. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.
What makes this event different is that those who attend are welcome to contribute to the day; you can chose to speak on a particular topic of expertise – sign up on the day or contact us in advance if you want to be prepared. Four sessions will run simultaneously, you can decide on the day what to attend. Refreshments will be available and it is an excellent opportunity to network. This is what attendees said of last year’s event…
BarCamp Cork is fun while you dunk yourself in the cooking pot. This is where you catch up on the future – get a good view on what’s coming over the horizon – and new ways of using stuff you thought you knew.
Treat yourself to a day that’ll sharpen you up on the latest trends.

I’m just packing my toothbrush before getting the 6pm train to Cork for tomorrow’s Bank of Ireland Business Advice Show. The IIA took part in this show as part of the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown Enterprise Week earlier this year. Unfortunately, we were unable to make it to the Galway show as our annual Congress was taking place around the same time.
As usual I would like to extend a welcome to any members of the IIA to come and join me at our stand to meet potential members and help me advise them. Obviously I could tell them in my sleep what the benefits of IIA membership are but sometimes living proof is good too. That’s where you come in!
Also representing the IIA I get asked all sorts of question about anything from Wifi to email to ecommerce to SEO to blogging. The latter two I can usually handle to varying degrees of success but I often wish there was an expert in web dev or design here to respond to these questions about developing a site, finding a good designer or eCommerce. So come along, you never know, you might drum up some business! So if you’re near the Maryborough House Hotel tomorrow from 2pm to 5pm pop in and say hello! This is your Association!
