It has been 10 years since the first BarCamp was held in Palo Alto, CA. Since then, BarCamps have been held in over 350 cities around the world, in North America, South America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Australasia and Asia.
Now at its sixth edition, we are proud to say BarCamp Miami got even better in every way.
It’s not your traditional talking heads technology conference. Everyone is expected to participate in some way: by giving a talk, asking questions, or organizing a session.
BarCamp fosters collaboration — matching technologists with designers, with engineers, and with angel investors. BarCamp brings people together who understand what new technology means for Miami’s future.
Events like BarCamp are important to our community, because they bring everyone together for sharing, learning, and networking over their centers of interest. Best of all, BarCamp is free to attendees.
However, there are costs associated with running BarCamp. Our sponsors make it all possible.
OUR VENUE: THE MIAMI AD SCHOOL
Built on the end of a city block in Wynwood, Miami’s hot emerging arts district, Miami Ad School’s new home is like no other school you’ve seen. The two buildings, connected by a bridge, are hot pink and covered in street art done by some of the world’s leading artists. Inside are photo studios, video conferencing center, brainstorming stations, and experiential classrooms – one is covered in projections of jelly fish and plays the athereal cello music of Yo-Yo Ma. Other classes are held outside in converted, silver airstream trailers complete with neon lights underneath. At first glance the tricked out trailers give the allusion that alien spaceships are landing at the school. The lawn is dotted with picnic tables you can write on with dry-erase markers – perfect for brainstorming sessions with your team. Wifi allows students to stay connected whether they are inside or out. When students need a break from thinking they can workout their bodies with a game on the sand volleyball court or astroturf soccer field.
