Barcamp MKE 8

BarCampMilwaukee 8
Milwaukee, WI

For the eighth consecutive year, BarCampMilwaukee is returning to Bucketworks the first weekend in October. Bucketworks will host the event at its current Grand Avenue location. Doors open at 9:00 AM, Saturday October 5th.

A BarCamp is a wholly unique event that provides a free, open-environment forum where the participants are in charge of what happens. It is an interactive conversation where professionals and curious alike come to learn, teach, and imagine. This revolutionary “unconference” allows participants to float from one session to another, and encourages the development of interesting ideas and spontaneous discussion. Since the first BarCamp in the US eight years ago, hundreds of BarCamps have been organized throughout the world.

Throughout BarCampMilwaukee’s eight year run, participants have been involved in a wide array of session topics ranging from:
Software Development: Ruby on Rails, Drupal, and JavaScript.
Technologies: 3d printing/scanning, video editing, robots, and solutions for non-profits.
Solutions for small businesses and non-profits.
All the way to things like Zombie Defense Preparation, lockpicking, sushi making, and many other topics for makers, DIYers, artists and other creatives.
