barcamp bournemouth V8

So we started thinking about putting on BCBOMO8 for later this year (with the demise of a few local events)… it was early days (finding a venue) and then Covid-19 turned the world upside down, so we thought we’d go virtual!

Full details to follow, but essentially the same format: there’ll be an intro/welcome talk at 1pm and a Google Doc to act as the room/time planner… for each session you just add a link to the hangout for people to join.

We’ll start on zoom and leave that open all afternoon – to prevent zoom bombing the password is in welcome email!

***latest update – we’re starting on zoom at 1pm – details below***

2016 – we were on a break!

The team have decided that we’re taking a break for 2016, bar camp bournemouth 8 will be back in 2017.

Amongst the core organisers*:

1 is moving house
1 is swanning around the world, in a sort of dev “catch me if you can” kinda way
2 of them are involved with organising other large events this year
1 claims to have won £33 million on the lottery

(*one of these might not be true)

We will be back in 2017, in the mean time we highly recommend you check out all of our friends that run events locally

till next time… take care of yourselves, and each other

bar camp bournemouth 7

A huge thank you to everyone that came along to bar camp bournemouth 7 – the Orange rooms proved to be an interesting change with much more character to the rooms… even if it meant some tweaks to make it work for talks (and thanks for lending us projectors folks!).

We reverted to post-its for this years schedule… nothing to do with being rick-rolled on it in previous years, promise…


There’s a great general round-up from Jon, a post from one of our sponsors (thanks!) Paul on his marshmallow challenge… and ummm… Nicholas Cage joined us… sort of.
