And lo! The geeks shall inherit the earth. And so it came to pass.

Barcamp – a technology related ‘unconference’ open to all – is coming to Liverpool. Barcamp Liverpool invites entrepreneurs, technologists,programmers, developers, designers, bloggers, social media types, gamers, and artists to two days of unadulterated geeky Barcamp fun.

We are expecting over 150 technology geeks (and not so geeks) and will be welcoming guests from Liverpool, the North West and London and some from across Europe – all coming to Liverpool for Barcamp; the city’s first Technology “Unconference’.

You may have read about it in the Daily Post.

Barcamp has some great sponsors – from local technology stars such as Screencasts Online, Mando Group, Amaze and Glow New Media to the giants of the industry. We’re honored to be supported by BBC Backstage, Yahoo! Developer Network, and Microsoft who are sponsoring the party – yes, there’ll be a party!

If you’d like to sponsor – perhaps by sponsoring a prize at the Startup Stars competition, get in touch.

For more info and to sign up, please check out the Barcamp Liverpool Website.


What to expect:

Barcamps are a great opportunity to network, lean and share. They’re loads of fun too! Barcamp attracts friendly groups of techy types for a weekend of workshops, hackathons, demos, presentations, games and of course the obligatory Wii Tennis tournament! Barcamp attracts a diverse crowd; from ubergeeks to games designers, to bloggers, to investors, to artists. Learn new skills, meet new people, pitch your startup, show and tell your latest invention or project. It’s up to you!

At Barcamp you can:

  • Show & Tell your latest project
  • Run a workshop
  • Hear from tech startups
  • Learn from expert developers
  • Meet and wow investors & industry experts
  • Work on collaborative projects
  • Meet new friends and colleagues
  • Play games
  • Party on the Saturday night!

Where else can you do all this & more for free?
