BarCamp’ is an international network of ‘unconferences’, open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants, focusing on early-stage web applications and related open source technologies and social protocols. The first ‘BarCamp’ was held in Palo Alto, California, from August 19-21, 2005, in the offices of Socialtext. Since then, the ‘BarCamp’ concept has spread across America, Europe and Asia.
