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.

If you have a blog post about #BCBOMO7 do let us know in the comments below.

A belated look back at BC Bomo 5

As we head into 2014 and in the oncoming months of planning another excellent Barcamp, it’s long overdue for me to look back at Barcamp Bournemouth 5 – there’s no time like the present, right?

Barcamp Bournemouth 5 was a great weekend. We had killer robot tanks, skydiving problems, NASA tours, multiplayer mazes, the always brilliant failure swapshop, and many more fantastic talks. If you want to skip to the storify highlights from Twitter, run yourself to the bottom of this post.

Thanks to our excellent sponsors – Bournemouth University, BCS,Β Freshleaf Media, and Campaign Monitor, we were able to provide a great weekend right on campus in Bournemouth Uni, with food, breakfast, and everything else in between, so a huge thank you to those.

And of course, a huge thank you to the attendees – the variety of attendees always makes Barcamp such an enthralling, fascinating experience – whether you’re a web developer, a software architect, or just plain geeky, Barcamp has always and continues to be a great place to meet new friends and catch up with old friends.

Barcamp Bournemouth 5 was brought to you by Jon, Paul, and Tim.

Planning for Barcamp Bournemouth 6 is already underway – we’ll have more news very soon.
