How to Get the Most Out of BarCamp Portland 4

BarCamp is about you — learn, share, hack, and celebrate around the tech and web you live.

There are no limits to BarCamp — prepare for a dizzying choice of sessions and dream big.

BarCamp unconferences run on user-generated content — pack all the good stuff like cameras, recording equipment, smart phones, laptops, moleskines, pens, business cards, charging cords, and anything else that you want to. Yes, do interview each other, blog, record sessions and conversations, photograph, and post.

Meet new friends, introduce yourself — leave room in your pack for the cards, stickers, and the accumulation of flotsam and jetsam that comes with exchanging ideas. You may want to prepare links, slides, and other references and citations to create a session topic or to lead a presentation. If you’re kind of shy by nature, two kindly registrars savvy to  the local geek scene will be at the front table and eager to make introductions.

~*Please RSVP*~ Do that here: To be sure there is enough to go around for both days, we need to know how many folks will be coming by. The sooner you can let us know you’ll be there better, since we are volunteer staffed and sponsor funded. (There is no obligation to attend if you register, and no one be turned away if they don’t.)
