BarCampRDU– is an “unconference”. A “barcamp” is defined by Wikipedia as
an international network of user-generated conferences- usually in the form
of participatory workshop events where people come to learn as well as to
teach others what they know about web apps, open source technology, etc.
Rather than have formal speakers, everyone sorta’ pitches in. There are
usually small groups with someone speaking and others listening, which helps
to foster an intense learning environment- plus it’s a great way to
socialize, network and make friends!
