Barcamp Grand Rapids Episode 3 :- Revenge of the Unconference

Barcamp Grand Rapids 3 is almost here!!!

After attending the first two BarCampGR(s), I have to say that I am most excited about attending this one. Not only does each one seems to get better and better, but this year, we have had a huge amount of support from the local businesses and we have surpassed expectation of registered attendees. I am very excited to see friends that I have made from the past events, as well as making new ones.

If you are new to the BarCamp concept, please take the time to investigate it further. I will say that is unlike any other commercial conference that you have ever attended. First and foremost, the event is 100% free. Now don't get the wrong impression, since the event is going to last for two days and it is free, please don't expect that you will be forced to brown bag it for the weekend. Thanks to generous donations from local area businesses, this event will also be catered and we will be handing out schwag to boot.

This will be a great time, and I hope to see you there.....

Living in Michigan means enjoying every possible minute of the summer. I would suggest that Barcamp be moved to a fall or winter weekend in the future - summers are filled with vacation, weddings, etc and are not meant to be spent inside.
