BarCamp is back in New York City, on?March 15th and 16th at PolyTech in Brooklyn.
What is BarCamp, you ask?
"BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees. The event doesn't cost any money, but there is a price: all attendees must give a demo, a session, or help with one."

**Calling all sponsors!**
An important element of BarCamp is the community side of sponsorships. Instead of being hostage to big sponsorship dollars, BarCamp gets the community involved by asking local companies to donate no more than $500 to the event (this covers university security, breakfast, and t-shirts (in that order ;-P).
