This Saturday is BarCamp Memphis. It’s a great group of people and a great opportunity to learn more about social media, technologies to support learning, and information technologies. I’m planning to be there, and I hope you’ll find a way to make it, too. They’ve got “pay what you can” and “student” categories for pricing.
Here’s the “unconference” description:
BarCamp isn’t just a Web 2.0 conference. It’s an unconference. What does that mean, exactly? Well… that’s up to you.
The entire event will be crafted by attendees (you), so you can learn about the specific technologies, trends, gadgets you really want to learn about – and hear from the people you find interesting. We’ll be voting first thing in the morning to determine the day’s sessions. Totally crowd-sourced!
