Barcamp Turku

What is a Barcamp?

Barcamp is an ad-hoc unconference 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. It has been happening since August 2005 in over 350 cities around the world.

This is the first Barcamp in Turku and we hope to be able to create a vibrant environment to boost interaction, increase knowledge sharing between people, and provide opportunities to meet people with similar passion.

How can I Participate?

Just come and participate. Its a freeform event which you decides what you want to do. You can share you ideas, or listen to other's idea. It doesn't matter how old you are, or where you come from. Everyone can be a speaker, everyone can be an audience.

What's the plan?

The event will start at 10am with Topic Posting. Attendees arrive and interested speakers can post their topics on the board, and other attendees can vote for what they are interested in. Organisers will start scheduling the sessions as the topics get voted.
At 10.30, the unconference will start. Topics will continue to be posted by speakers, voted by audience and scheduled by organiser. Audiances are welcome to enter and leave any sessions as they wish at any point in time.
Each speaker will be given 25 minutes to share and discuss about anything they are interested in.

Restaurant Day in Turku

In conjunction with Restaurant Day, we are offering tables to interested parties to set up and sell food! We had managed to get permission from Dean Markus Granlund from the Turku School of Economics to set up restaurants in Mercatori, shielding you and your foodies from the cold winter outside. We hope to be able to get people from all cultures to come and share different kinds of food. So feel free to get a table space to set up your restaurant. Whether you want to serve hot food or cold, we can set up the neccessary arrangements for you.
A small fee for the restaurant booths (which includes table, chairs and electricity) will be charged to off-set any cost incurred for arrangement of the venue.
