Girl geeks based in Manchester are organising a Baramp in March so why not head along. More details below.
Following on from our successful ‘Show & Tell’ events, Manchester Girl Geeks are hosting a BarCamp – an all-day interactive ‘unconference‘, where the talks are provided by attendees, and the programme isn’t known until the conference is under way! Think of it as a big, all-day Show&Tell!
Typical topics at BarCamps include technology, science, mathematics, or anything else that’s geeky and fun! Share your knowledge, passion and enthusiasm with other like-minded nerdy types. As with all Manchester Girl Geeks events, male attendees are welcome – to make sure we’re balanced, it would be great if you could bring along a female friend or girl geek. It’s a win/win/win situation, right?
The event is free to attend, and refreshments will be provided. Bring your laptop, tablet, phone or other wi-fi enabled device, and anything you want to share!
Girl Geeks BarCamp Manchester will be held on Saturday 16th March 2013, and will run from 10am-5pm. The event will take place across both floors of MadLab, 36/40 Edge Street, in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
The ground floor talks and toilets are wheelchair accessible, and the venue has free wi-fi and power sockets for your laptops.
We also have some funds available to contribute towards costs for child care and accessibility (e.g. taxis). It won’t be a lot, but we’re hoping to help make the BarCamp as accessible as possible for everyone! You will have to notify us before the event so we can consider you for funding.
