Barcamp Philly 2

BarCamp Philly to be held November 14 at the University of the Arts

2008’s inaugural Barcamp Philly was a huge success, seeding several other similarly styled events throughout the region including HealthCamp, HigherEdCamp, and Barcamp News Innovation – a partnership between traditional and new media outlets. Not surprisingly, planning for a second, more broadly open Barcamp began this summer with Roz Duffy and JP Toto returning to head another highly successful event, with the addition of the ever energetic Kelani Edmondson to the organizing team. Here’s the Rundown for 2009’s 2nd Annual BarCampPhilly:

“BarCamp Philly will be an action-packed weekend of creativity, collaboration, FUN, and other random awesomeness.”
