BarCamp OKC on July 24th

I just received a note from the okcCoCo about an upcoming OpenBeta BarCamp in Oklahoma City.  Here’s the details from the email

OpenBeta BarCamp II

BarCamp is back and will even bigger and better this year!

A BarCamp is an intensely participant-driven conference where attendees share and learn in an open environment. The primary goal of BarCamp is education of attendees. As compared to a traditional conference, the large majority of the talks, panels and other sessions are organized organically the day of the event. People propose presentations and it all gets sorted out at the beginning. Trust us, it just works. BarCamp is an event format that has been successfully applied across the country, including Oklahoma City.

We held the first BarCamp in Oklahoma City in July of 2009. We had approximately 60 attendees participate in 20 sessions divided into two simultaneous tracks. Session topics included HTML, Javascript, JQuery, Cloud computing, NoSQL, Python, PHP, Web 2.0 Business Models, Online Startups, and Growing Online Businesses. The theme of this year’s BarCamp is web development and entrepreneurship. The target audience is web development professionals and entrepreneurs.
