BarCamp gig in the North

At last someone is doing a BarCamp gig in the north – in Sheffield no less.
Why? Because the internet is currently going through an exciting time. Web 2.0, OpenID, Social Networking etc. The UK is at the forefront of a lot of this innovation. The North of England is full of enterprising and innovative individuals / businesses but we normally have to travel to London to talk to kindred spirits. Not any more!
The organisers want BarCampSheffield to showcase the best that the UK has to offer. They want to share knowledge, experience and techniques. If you have a great idea, have developed a great Web App / Mashup or are simply interested in finding out what everyone else in the market is doing then come along – the come along!
To make things interesting BarCampSheffield has secured a £1000 award for the best / most innovative web application / mashup by a UK developer(s). All you have to do is come to Sheffield and demonstrate it. BarCampSheffield’s sponsors are also keen to help you get your application / mashup out into the public.
So, if you want to help share your knowledge or simply talk to people with like minded interests - then come on and join us.
So where is it?

There's definatly not enough events like this up north. We're looking to put on another event, focusing on Ecommerce later in the year, also in Sheffield.

Only found out about it today! Put my name down though, sounds like fun. Hope there's going to be some live developing amongst the presentations ;-)
