BarCamp Albuquerque 3: Sept 13 & 14th



Albuquerque BarCamp 3 is coming up on Saturday September 13th and 14th, 2008. As the name implies, this is the 3rd BarCamp we've seen here in Albuquerque -- and they continue to get better, reflecting the growth in talented web, software and technology professionals we've been seeing lately (it's pretty exciting).

And many of the top people locally plan to present this time out. Check it out.

What it BarCamp? Want to sign up? Read on below (from Reid Givens at the Refresh Albuquerque Group Site)...
What is BarCamp?

BarCamp is a conference unlike most all other conferences for two
reasons:
1. No one owns it or makes any money off of it
2. The attendees are the presenters

BarCamp is based on the simple idea that we are all experts. Why pay a
few so called experts to come in and talk when we have a wealth of
information right here? Besides, when we don't pay for speakers, we
don't have to charge for the conference.

Attending BarCamp doesn't mean that you HAVE to present (although you
probably know something some of us don't), but it does mean that for
at least a day you can learn something new that can affect your
career, and you get to see who else in the community is out there,
what they're doing and just plain have fun. Going to BarCamp was the
best thing I ever did for my career, and it created friendships that
have lasted years.

BarCamp is free and doesn't take a lot of time out of your life. Come
and meet designers, developers, marketers, usability experts and
anyone else that stops by. This year, lunch will be provided so you
don't even have to pay for food! You can't lose!
