This past weekend, I brought the Yahoo! yodel to BarCamp Charleston. During registration, you could feel the energy in the air as speakers and attendees got their morning coffee fix. From 10 AM to 6 PM, over 50 sessions were held spanning technology, salsa dancing, geocaching, chiropractics, and even home beer brewing. The event was held in downtown Charleston, South Carolina at the College of Charleston.
Yahoo! was proud to sponsor BarCamp Charleston for the second year in a row, and I am honored to have been able to speak at it, but more on that later.
A BarCamp is a user-generated conference, where the sessions and workshops are proposed and scheduled at the opening of the event. During the morning pitch session from 9 AM to 10 AM, aspiring presenters jotted down their topics on notecards, then gave 30-second pitches at the microphone on stage. Fortunately, the schedule was able to accommodate all speakers, so no voting was required. BarCamp Charleston was off and running!Read More »from Yodeling in the South: BarCamp Charleston 2010
