The Springtime un-conference in Charlottesville, VA

Saturday Apr 27, 9:30am-4pm
@ OpenSource Connections

What is beSwarm?

An Unconference Movement

beCamp and its springtime counterpart, beSwarm, is a Charlottesville tech conference series planned by the people who show up. Where beCamp is a Friday/Saturday event in the fall, beSwarm is a Saturday-only event in the spring.  When you attend a conference, the conversations in the hallway are often as great as the talks on the schedule. beSwarm focuses entirely on that. Think of the event like one big hallway, with friendly people, warm introductions, and lightning talks to spur conversations. You can learn more about the Unconference movement here.

An event for everyone

beCamp and beSwarm are for everyone! While the events leans towards technology, there are always a number of interesting topics that come up outside of the realm of software. In the past we've learned why "magenta" isn't a real color, how to make the best bread possible, and even how to pick locks (ahem, as a sport). Come spend the day with your peers and learn something new!
