BarCampBoston2: All The Cool Kids + Me

Next weekend (March 17/18) is the second BarCamp Boston.  For those of you unfamiliar with the concept of BarCamp, it is an “unconference” where the entire event is generated on the fly as emergent behavior.

 

OnStartups was a sponsor at last year’s event, but I didn’t get a chance to actually attend.  I’m a sponsor again this year, and was close to missing this year’s event too (as I was scheduled to be out of town this weekend), but have had a change of plans and so will be attending after all.

 

Here’s a link with more details on the event: http://barcamp.org/BarCampBoston2

 

This year, the event is being held at MIT (at the Stata Center), which makes it much more convenient for lots of people.  It’s especially convenient for me is this is a 2 minute walk from the HubSpot offices.

 

Though mostly a technical conference, there seems to be a fair amount of interest in startups and startup topics.  If you’re in the Boston area and are interested in software, startups or both I encourage you to attend.  It should be an interesting event. 

 

Hope to you see there.
