Well, we did it… we pulled it off… BarCampMilwaukee was a huge success! I’d like to personally thank every person who was involved in making it happen.

How do I define huge success? We only had a few minor injuries, everyone there seemed to be having a good time, people learned new things, they shared their passions, and made new friends. All good…

As I get some time between doing follow-up stuff, and editing video, I’ll try to write up some more detailed posts about the different sessions and topics I was involved with. Hopefully others will do the same.

I already thanked most of the sponsors (see BarCampMilwaukee Part IX) but should add a thanks to 800 CEO Read for providing breakfast on Sunday, and O’Reilly for sending us some books for the participants and the Bucketworks library…

We’ve come a long way since the first post about BarCampMilwaukee on July 5th, 2006.

We should also extend a special thanks to Jeramey Jannene who was involved in the planning from early on but had to miss BarCampMilwaukee due to a family emergency… We missed you Jeramey!

(I would have had this post up sooner, but Mike called me to ask me why I didn’t write a post yet… Here it is Mike!)

    Sorry to crack the whip — I was just excited to hear how you felt BCM went off. :-)

    Great to hear you were pleased, because I was very pleased myself. Thanks for your hard work Pete, it’s much appreciated by many.
