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

Just over a week to go till Bar Camp Bournemouth 7 – there are still a few tickets available on eventbrite

Things you need to know:

  • Doors open 10am
  • Intro talk 1015 – if you’ve never been PLEASE make sure you’re there for then
  • We’ll be using old school post-its to build the schedule – if you already know what your session is, feel free to bring it along and add it to the schedule
  • (Stealing from Adrian at UXBOMO) we’ll also be encouraging people to dot those sessions they intend to attend so we can move to fit them into the spaces available
  • Lunch is provided (Thanks to our sponsors: BCS Dorset, aTech Media and Proactive) – there will be a veggie option, any other dietary requirements (allergies etc) please drop the organisers a note ASAP via twitter or email
  • The last session of the day will be lightning talks
  • The venue will be open to the public from 6 but is exclusive to us until then, we’ll continue with karaoke powerpoint etc after 6 in one of the spaces
  • We have some budget to provide free drinks (thanks again sponsors!), when would you like that? through the day, lunchtime, end of the day?

Any questions – leave in the comments and we’ll get back to you ASAP!
