A day by geeks, for geeks and about geeks on October 18th, 2014.

Join us once again this year where the University of South Florida's College of Business ( 4202 E Fowler Ave, Tampa, FL 33620 ) will welcome us to their campus for a day of learning, sharing, networking and geeky fun.

About the Event

The event will be a BarCamp Tampa Bay. The doors open at 7:30 am and signups begin shortly thereafter. Sign-ups for sessions are from 7:30am to 9:00am on a first-come, first-served basis. Sessions start at 9:00am and end at 5:00pm with a break for lunch at noon. Lunch will be provided. Parking is free and across the street at the SunDome. There will be more information in an email we will send out to registrants just before the event.

Speakers at a BarCamp

If you have never been to a BarCamp unconference what kind of sessions and speakers can you expect? This is a day of learning for our attendees who represent all coding languages and supporting technologies in the Tampa Bay and surrounding areas. Expect some very exciting sessions planned for and by our developer community with related topics such as Google Glass, User Experience (UX), design, startups and many more. This year we will also have teams from the FIRST ® Robotics kids group working and demonstrating their robots for the day along with Tampa Hackerpace, St. Pete Makers and the Tampa Bay Inventors Council. We have a number of videos of sessions posted on our YouTube channel. This video is a compilation of BarCamp topics and can be found here.

If you have a topic you want to share with the tech community, BarCamps by tradition do their sign ups the morning of the event on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration starts at 7:30am and sessions begin at 9:00am. Sessions last 50 minutes and we recommend that you plan for about 20 to 25 minutes for your presentation followed by an interactive question and answer session. If you would like to learn more about how to do a BarCamp session, you can check here or here.
