This weekend was Barcamp Oxford, and suffice it to say it was utterly fantastic. While a delicious ham cooks, I just thought I’d jot down some notes.
The day for me started early on Saturday with a walk into town (Oxford’s buses being resoundingly useless), still it was a lovely sunny day and I had some good tunes on my mp3 player so I didn’t mind working on my tan for a while.
Anywho, got to the Oxford Club in time for registration and for the slots to be put up… a dizzying array of very interesting possible discussions were soon put up.
Obviously I couldn’t go to all the sessions, but those I did go to were fantastically useful.
Highlights were a thought provoking, passionate and mature discussion of women in technology, and education in general. Additionally, met a bunch of very cool people who I hope to keep in touch with!
The beeper has just gone on my oven so I must tend to my food. Suffice it to say, I found the event both highly enjoyable, stimulating and very very useful.
Props to all the people who worked so hard to make this happen, you are all awesome!
Same time next year?
