DemoCamp Vancouver tonight

DemoCamp Vancouver 11 is tonight and organizers are going back to DemoCamp’s roots – so there will be no featured presentations. Here’s the format:

  • come in the door and post your demo idea on the board
  • 30 minutes of meeting other attendees (promote your idea, get votes!)
  • presentation process starts at 6:00pm
  • 30 second elevator pitches by all presenters
  • attendees vote on top 4
  • we will have 4 x 6 minute talks (time limit enforced, includes feedback time!)

DemoCamp was envisioned by Toronto’s David Crow four years ago as an alternative to Bar Camp.

A DemoCamp is a lighter-weight style of un-conference. A DemoCamp last only a few hours on a weekday evening, as opposed to a traditional BarCamp which would usually be a multi-day event and take place on a weekend. As such, they are easier to organize and tend to happen more frequently.

DemoCamp Vancouver 11 is at Ceili’s Irish Pub at 670 Smithe Street. The doors open at 5:30pm and the presentation process starts at 6:00pm.
