Free BarCamp Harrisburg 2014 Set for May 3rd at Harrisburg University!

The topics for BarCamp Harrisburg 2014 are set by the participants and include tracks on web and learning technologies, mobile application development, cyber security and coding.

 
PRLog - Apr. 3, 2014 - HARRISBURG, Pa. -- BarCamp Harrisburg 6 is set for Saturday, May 3, 2014 at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology in PA.

The free technology-oriented conference is known as an “unconference” because it is filled with open, participatory events, discussions, and workshops where presentation content is provided by the participants rather than chosen speakers. The annual event draws nearly 200 web developers, cloud computing experts, educators, e-learning experts, application developers and software engineers.

Entry is free but a registration is required. The topics for BarCamp Harrisburg 2014 are set by the participants and include tracks on web and learning technologies, mobile application development, cyber security and coding.

Make plans to arrive around 9-10 am, have breakfast, network, and post topics you would like to discuss on a schedule board (we’ll have markers and a whiteboard available to post topics). Following a brief kick-off meeting with the entire group, the day will consist of sessions broken down into 45-minute blocks. Sessions can be discussions, workshops, or presentation--it’s up to you! There will be a break for lunch, followed by afternoon sessions that will run until around 5 pm.
BarCamp Harrisburg is organized by Hauck Interactive and Harrisburg University of Science and Technology.

Past sessions at BarCamp Harrisburg have included building a site using the Gaia Flash Framework; Flash vs. HTML5; Social Media; Open source content management systems; Developing Desktop Applications using AIR; Developing Android Applications; Yahoo! Query Language; How to use SVN with Web projects; Top Photoshop Tricks; Top WordPress and Drupal plugins; Application Performance & Scaling; Best Security Practices; Unix Command Line Productivity Tips; and Applying User Interface Design to Source Code.

The first BarCamp took place in 2005, and since that time BarCamps have been held in over 350 cities all over the world. BarCamp originated as a response to Foo Camp, which was an invitation-only conference. Both conferences are a play on the terms foo, bar, and foobar, which are common placeholder/variable names used by hackers and computer programmers.
