Sunday, February 21st, 2009 - In the early morning heat of Coconut Grove, Florida, developers and enthusiasts alike met at Anokha Bar on Virginia Street for BarCamp Miami. This was the first BarCamp that I have attended, and I must say that this type of event is true to its California roots, and was the best structured chaos I have seen in quite a long time. The venue was split up into a series of spaces with projectors, as well as two conference rooms at the hotel across the street. Upon entering the event, we were met with a large whiteboard split up into 30 minute time slots with a series of post-its all over it displaying the different talks you could attend.
I must say, this thing moved fast...I was jumping around from room to room all day to catch the different talks I was interested in. I decided to follow a track focusing on the social space...just because I'm such a social kind of guy. Let me tell you about some of my favorite talks:
