BarCamp is an open-format conference where everyone is welcome to speak on any topic they’re passionate about. Note that sessions aren’t scheduled in advance; the agenda is created the day of the event in the spirit of an “unconference.” BarCamp Sarasota’s conference events are FREE* and OPEN TO EVERYONE with the desire to learn in an open, engaging environment. We operate in an open forum format where attendees are encouraged to be active participants and share their ideas. Let your interests guide you! Bring your ideas to share, whether by signing up to discuss an area of expertise, demonstrating your project, becoming part of a panel discussion, or taking part in engaging conversations with other like-minded people.
Topics from previous conferences have included: business development, entrepreneurship and start-ups, technology and innovation from new media, green technology, software/mobile applications, marketing, science-fiction, inventions and gadgets, community and economic development, robotics, art and design, and much more.
