Well it’s that time of year again that we need to set the wheels in motion to make sure BarCamp Bournemouth 5. The team behind the past BarCamps in the town want to make BCBOMO5 the biggest and bestest one that Bournemouth has ever seen. So how are we going to make this happen…?
BarCamp Bournemouth 4 came back again in 2012 with an aim of making the event bigger and better than before. With all tickets gone the weekend started strong with the timetable filling up quickly.
This year’s event raised the bar on quality with a plethora of interesting, thought-provoking and fresh ideas. Both veterans and newbies alike raised topics penetration testing, the development of Formula 1 cars, how piracy fuels resilience, getting a job and not forgetting a strong presence from the design community’s greatest minds discussing web, fonts and learning tools for web development.
The new kid this year though was the Hackspace. This little bundle established itself early in the weekend as a great laboratory of unstoppable force connecting digital minds and machines in a patchwork of systems and protocols that Mary Shelley would have been proud of. Pushing right through the night and into the Sunday, Hackspace presented its “contraptlications” to bring the event to a close with Syd and Adam walking away with this year’s box of hacking goodies.
The legacy of BarCamp in Bournemouth has grown larger and the standard grown to a new high. As 2013 looms the question stands – what do you think we’ll see next year?
- Personal live video feeds to the web as social media takes a step too far?
- Your fridge and cooker begin talking over network as your home becomes sentient?
- Programming be taught in primary schools and the death of traditional education?
- Birthday cake at BarCamp Bournemouth 5?!
