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.

BizCamp is a user generated business conference with open, participatory workshop-events, where content is provided by the participants. It is a new feature on the Irish business events calendar and is based on principles of interaction, engagement and conversation. It’s a free event and therefore sponsors are very welcome 🙂
I had my first experience of a camp-style conference last September which focussed on one of my main interests: social media. At that camp, I learnt lots of interest in that arena. So I didn’t hesitate to sign up for Bizcamp either – I figured if I learnt half as much as I did at Podcamp Ireland and met half as many people who have been a boon to my work with the IIA it would be a day well spent. Bizcamp Dublin is being organised by, among others, Keith Bohanna, who is on the IIA Board, and Alan O’Rourke of Spoiltchild, an IIA member. In the video below Keith explains a bit more about what to expect at Bizcamp. Watch it and then go register!
