It has been way too long since we've all gotten together, shared a frosty beverage and exchanged war stories - and there is no better reason to get things rolling again than Mini BarCamp (combined with a local business's willingness to host).
Heard of BarCampNOLA? (http://www.barcampnola.com (http://www.barcampnola.com/)) Ever wondered what a BarCamp "unconference" is like? Find out at a special Net2NO Meetup - the Eighth Annual MiniBar.
What happens at MiniBar you ask? We attempt to squeeze the excitement, education and entertainment of BarCampNola into one action packed hour with three mini presentations.

Still not sure what a "BarCamp is?
To sum it up, BarCampNola is a yearly “unconference” that brings passionate people together to share what they love with the community. While it initially started off with a more tech focus, the event has grown into more than that and welcomes anybody who wants to discuss their favorite topics or subject matter.
