BarCamp 2013 schedule (click to enlarge)

BarCamp is an annual relaxed, friendly, free, geeky unconference. In Portland the event took place on Friday March 29th & Saturday March 30th in 2013, and on Friday, May 20th & Sturday, May 21st in 2011, and in other years.

According to a woman eating a too-spicy meal and attending her first BarCamp in 2013, the 2013 BarCamp is the 7th in a series. She could not confirm if all seven events took place over a 7 year span. But according to the Melissa Chavez, the communications chair for BarCamp 2013, all seven Portland BarCamps took place over seven consecutive years.

At BarCamp 2011, a great session about PortlandWiki was held by our own Matthew Spellman. But as any BarCamp attendee knows, every single session had great conversation and was a learning experience (see picture listing all sessions). Great geeky friendly energy all around. Also delicious food from Nicholas Restaurant, somehow plentiful enough for over a hundred ravenous nerds.
