Post details: BarCampGrandRapids

Aug 21, 2006 : BarCampGrandRapids

BarCampGrandRapids was a great success! (follow the link to find out what it's all about). We had about 17 people show up friday night and about 14 on saturday. Not everyone spoke, but that was fine. We had plenty of sessions to fill the whole time, especially since we only split into two rooms for one session.

Starting Friday dinner worked quite well, I think. It gave an opportunity for the curious to show up, catch the intro and several sessions, and easily leave if it wasn't their thing. Only 5 of us stayed overnight, but it was good for those of us who did. Extra socializing, convenience, etc. Except that Campus Safety wasn't too clear on keeping the doors unlocked for us. Oh well.

The sessions given were all pretty good. I was particularly interested in Andrew's talk about Geo. I like that stuff, plus you can make lots of cool mashups. He had at least 4 :) I spoke briefly on Organizing Digital Photos, RSI, and Konfidi. I don't know how well I presented them, since they all were somewhat rushed because we were behind schedule. And I have a hard time getting an outside perspective on my own communicative flow. Jeff DeMaagd video recorded most (all?) sessions, so we'll probably make those available when we can.

Thanks to GFS for lots of food, Calvin for the facility, and Envoi Solutions for a fun friday night out.

See photos, bookmarks, and other blog entries that came out of BarCampGrandRapids.

Perhaps we'll see you all next year, to learn more, meet more new people, and get together with more friends!
