It’s been at least a week since I rambled on about BarCampMilwaukee, so it’s time for an update.
The BarCampMilwaukee.com site is growing, but honestly I think it’s getting a bit confusing. Hopefully it makes sense to people not familiar with BarCamps and/or wikis, but if we need to refactor, then we will…
We had a planning meeting last week, and got a tour of Bucketworks. It became clear that Bucketworks will be an awesome venue for BarCampMilwaukee. We certainly are not limited by space constraints. Our biggest concern about Bucketworks is the bandwidth. We still don’t have a definite solution, but we will consider asking people that are not leading a session to refrain from using excessive bandwidth if possible. (Meaning, don’t download Linux ISO’s Saturday afternoon!)
There is no doubt in the minds of the people planning it that this will be an amazing event, and probably Milwaukee’s first “un-conference” as well. Please spread the word about it, and make plans now to be there!
