What is a BarCamp?! A BarCamp is an opportunity for you to actively present, share and participate. This is not the moment where you doze off but all are participating.

How does it work?

  1. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join: When you come, be prepared to share!

  2. It is active: no spectators, only participants. Come prepared to share your ideas, to give a presentation or demo.

  3. You decide what gets discussed: Everyone will propose a topic and can select their preferences - using – so the most popular topics will be presented.

  4. There will be two sessions:  First one on Saturday to learn and share, the second one on Sunday on future ideas.

  5. Continue the conversation: BarCamp isn’t over when everyone goes home. Keep the dialogue flowing with discussion groups and social media. #TVSeminar2019BarCamp
