BarCamp is a community driven event, centered around new technology, Web 2.0, digital media, blogging and podcasting. The day of sessions is hands on and is driven by a community spirit that encourages participants to “share what they know and learn what they don’t”. The learning experience is amazing for all who attend. Regardless of your skill level, you will learn something new and exciting
Barcamp Memphis is hosted by LunaWeb and Launch Memphis. Sponsors include SocialMedia Expidition, MPACT Memphis, MemphisConnect, O’Reilly, MarksMenus, SCHED, Griffin, MASE, SOB (South of Beale) and ResortQuest.
