Well… are you ? I’m going to be there and here’s why…
- It’s in Galway city – the most beautiful city in Ireland (and that’s coming from a Jackeen who lives in Cork).
- There are going to be some interesting talks. For example: Sean McGrath is going to be talking about Mashups. No pressure Sean. No pressure.
- It will be a great chance to meet and chat with like-minded and not-so-like-minded people.
- It’s FREE.
… but the number one reason you should go to Barcamp Galway ? Well let me put it this way …
If you’re an introvert or terrified of speaking in public, Barcamp is a great opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and exercise your inner extrovert. The best thing about BarCamp is it’s spirit of active participation. BarCamp does have it’s fair share of Technology talks but to be honest – anything goes. You can talk about anything.
At the next barcamp in Galway I’ll be giving a talk again (not the same talk – I promise) and as with all other BarCamp’s I’ve been to – I’ll be wishing there were 72 hours in the day so I don’t miss any talks.
See you there.
