If you live in the Portland, Oregon area or feel like driving to Portland there is a really exciting free event coming up this friday it is Portland BarCamp 7.
“BarCamp is an international network of user-generated conferences. BarCamps are open, participatory workshop-like events whose content is provided by participants. Topics often focus on but are not limited to early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies, social protocols, open data formats and other DIY/hacker/open culture themes.
At BarCamp, there are no spectators, only participants. Attendees should prepare a demo, a session, or help with one, or otherwise volunteer / contribute in some way to support the event. All presentations are scheduled the day they happen. BarCamp participants help to select the topics they want to see and talk about.” from the BarCamp Portland site.
