You have been looking for hanging around with geeks and higly talented people ?
Talking about open source software and having open discussions about
IT in general ?
Thats all besides having fun, food and drinks ;) ?
If thats what you have been looking for then you MUST attend the
BarCampApacheOxford[masked]th of September.
The next BarCampApacheOxford  will be held on the Sunday, 11th of
September 2011 at the University Club, Mansfield Road, Oxford.
There would also be a social (meal, pub) on the previous evening (on
the 10th). It's also a great opportunity for the
TransferSummit/UK  attendees to stay back in Oxford for a little
longer and carry on the networking for no additional cost.
So what is BarCampApache?
BarCampApache is a dynamic get-together open to the public. Like other
unconferences, the schedule will be determined by the
Barcamps are free and open to anyone, whether from business, academia
or neither. They are informal, ad-hoc gatherings.
There are no fixed speakers, talks or topics. Instead, they rely on
the participation of attendees.
Here are some ways you could contribute:
- Present (informally or formally) about your favourite project
- Hack together a mashup with other attendees' systems
- Play devil's advocate in a lively debate
- Have a drink with someone you have never met before
Every attendee is encouraged (though not required) to offer a
presentation; exactly what will happen, though, will be decided among
the participants on the day. The day will be divided into multiple
sessions, with a number of activities happening at once.
You can register (it's free, but mandatory) by adding your name to the
attendees list on the BarCamp wiki.
