What Else Does BarCamp Nashville 2011 Offer

BarCamp Nashville offers a full day of learning, networking & socializing. This year we are offering access to live video streaming station. Learn more about what's up and how to get involved

If you’ve been following along the BarCamp Nashville (#bcn11) blog tour you’ve learned what BarCamp Nashville is from Courtenay Rogers, how to improve your presentations from Cal Evans, getting the most out of the event from Sue Painter, how the people and event helped Luke Stokes come out of his shell, and much more from a variety of others.

So what else does BarCamp Nashville have to offer besides learning, speaking, networking and consuming adult beverages? For the first time at BarCamp Nashville, we will be offering an impromptu live video streaming station for attendees. We first tried it during PodCamp Nashville this spring, and it was fun,  we are doing it again. Take a look at the uStream archive for PodCamp 2011 to get an idea of what we did this spring.

A group of BarCamp Nashville crew will be setting up on the first floor main stage of Cadillac Ranch. We’ll have cameras and mics hooked to a laptop that sends live video to uStream. That’s pretty much it.

So how do you get involved? You can come up to the stage after 9am on Saturday morning of BarCamp and sign up for a slot. If you want to be more involved we are always looking for people to help set up and out throughout the day man the laptop or cameras. Contact me via twitter at @mDave if you are interested in helping out.

EQUIPMENT NEEDS: We are still looking for a small mixing board and a few XLR mics with table stands, so contact me if you can help!

 

BarCamp Tips

My tips for any of the un-conferences in Nashville is first just show up. It’s the hardest thing to do on a Saturday is get up and be somewhere by 9am.

The final tip is you make the day either a great learning networking hanging out experience or a waste of time. Don’t be shy, step out of your comfort zone and do something different.
