BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees. This year's BarCamp anniversary will take place full circle back in the same place it started: SocialText's offices... and spilling out into the streets!
BarCampEarth (formerly BarCampWorldwide) is a simultaneous compendium of Barcamps around the world to commemorate the anniversary of the first-ever BarCamp . This year's event will take place Aug 17-19 around the world. In Silicon Valley, the local event is BarCampBlock in Palo Alto on August 18-19. The plan for this year is to have a multi-office party starting at SocialText's offices... and looping in nearby neighbors like IDEO , Edgeio , Intalio and so on. Current sponsors include Socialtext, Strategiclee, Web2.0 Expo, Techcrunch, Google, Yahoo, Lumeno.us, IDEO, Edgeio, and Intalio.
You can register for the event here . However, you should also add yourself to the attendee list on the event wiki . I'll be there and I hope to see many of the Java developers that attend the Silicon Valley Web Developer JUG meetings there too.
