Geeks to Gather at BarCamp Nashville This Weekend

BarCamp Nashville 2008The Nashville tech/geek community will gather this Saturday at the Sommet Center for the second annual BarCamp Nashville. Building on last year's success, this year's event broadens the opportunities for participation with four simultaneous presentation rooms, an expo hall to meet sponsors and grab refreshments, a cafe for "birds of a feather" meet-ups, and a bar for, you know, acquiring social lubricant.

And to further the networking opportunities, there will be After BarCamp Events, including a downtown pub crawl and discounted tickets for the Predators hockey game.

If you have an interest in new media, social networking, web applications, online marketing or anything kinda techie in Nashville, then you should be at BarCamp this weekend. Registration is free. Anyone can sign up to speak. And you can check out some of the topics on the website.

Also, be sure to follow BarCampNash on Twitter.

See you at BarCamp!

Bummer! can not tell you how much I'd love to attend this.

We are hosting BlissDom, a blogging conference for women, that same day. We were originally going to have a party when BlogHer was coming to town the 16th. But when they canceled at the last minute, we stepped up to fill in that space (women had already bought plane tickets and made arrangements)

No idea it was the same day as this.

February will be when we hold it from now on, so this should no longer be an issue.
