Bar Camp Leeds is this weekend, Saturday 17th November 2007, and its wildly oversubscribed. I know a few people who were hoping to go and haven't been able to get places. At the time of writing, I'm still planning to speak but there's less than 48 hours to go and I haven't got further than deciding I may speak about source control, and subversion specifically. The nerves are starting to kick in ...
Recently I found out about a phenomenon called BarCamp, where a bunch of people, mostly geeks, turn up and run their own un-conference. Every attendee speaks, at least that's the theory, and there are a lot of concurrent sessions - so you just attend what you want to. It looks interesting and although nobody is making all attendees speak, I figure its good to join in with these things.
