Barcamp & Bar

Come along for great discussions and knowledge sharing on all the hot topics from the conference and all those we could not squeeze into the conference days! Never heard of a barcamp? Have a look here to get an idea.
As we all know some of the most interesting conversations happen after the official programme is over. That's why we want to encourage everyone participating in the barcamp to afterwards meet in a bar nearby

What is a barcamp?

Barcamps are informal sessions, a kind of "un-conference", with a schedule decided on the day. It is all driven by the interests and expertise of those who attend so each one is different, but ours are always great!

Although the barcamp doesn't have a strict schedule, it won't be completely devoid of structure! #bbuzz barcamps are dynamic events, focused on the overall Berlin Buzzwords topics, tackling the same challenges but in a different format. At the barcamp each session runs for 30 minutes giving enough time to get into the meat of a topic, but without a chance of anyone getting bored. These are participatory sessions and more inclusive than regular conference talks, with everyone taking part. You can help by leading the session, by giving some insights, by asking some great questions, or maybe just with your enthusiasm.
