A group of engineers from Wayfair will pause trying to make Halloween pictures in Graphite and stop looking for a ghost in the machine with Skyline this weekend to head over to the 8th reincarnation of BarCampBoston.
BarCampBoston is a great example of an unconference. These conferences are filled with their own kind of tech conf magic, so if you haven’t registered yet, I’d put down your magic wand and signup quick!. 600+ attendees will be headed to the MIT Stata Center this weekend like a swarm of undead, showing how very much alive the Boston tech scene is.
Over the past 7 years the event has continued to grow in size and popularity without losing the unconference spirit and feel. It will be interesting to see how this year’s event handles keeping with the unconference model at such a scale. Some of the normal process at an unconference is geared more for smaller groups, so I wouldn’t be frightened if things need to be tweaked a little to work for such a large crowd.
We look forward to seeing all of the talks that are conjured up at BarCampBoston this weekend!
