How to make the most of barcamp in 10 easy to follow steps

Step 1: Be Prepared

Be Prepared • Make slides and notes in advance • Free to listen and partake in other sessions • Iron out those glitches

Step 2: Go Alone

Go Alone or in a Small Group • Greater opportunity to meet people • Network in groups of 2 or 3 • Introduce to each other

Step 3: Arrive Early

Arrive Early • Barcamps not every weekend • Get your session on the grid • Breakfast (if your lucky)

Step 4: Be Prepared for Change

Be Prepared for Change • Barcamp is all about challenging convention • Be open to adapting your session • Consider entirely new sessions on the back of discussions at barcamp

Step 5: Don’t Be Afraid

Don’t Be Afraid (to leave a session) • Not every session is for every one - multiple trakcs • Engage with the group before you leave • Find another session!

Step 6: Make Few Plans

Make Few Plans • Anything can happen at barcamp. No, really! • Opportunities to socialise outside barcamp, or perhaps share a ride • If you make plans, you will miss out!

Step 7: Bring Cards

Bring Personal and Business Cards • Don’t let people forget you • Business cards for those interested in your work • Personal cards for everyone (else) • Online contact details

Step 8: Keep in Contact

Keep in Contact • Collect those business cards • Add people to your gmail account, and import to LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Upcoming, Dopplr etc. • If your really keen, do it on the way home, but whatever you do, don’t wait!

Step 9: Have Fun!

Have Fun • Really! Barcamp is not just about networking and learning • Fun with likeminded people • Play werewolf, uncricket, buzzword bingo, etc. • Take your eyes away from the screen

Step 10: Organise Your Own Barcamp

Organise Your Own Barcamp • Most important step of all • Give back to the community, locally or for a specialist topic • Don’t worry about it, just do it!
