SARASOTA, Fla. -- This Saturday and Sunday is “DaVinci’s Faire” – a weekend of learning, wonder, and amazement put on by BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton. This unique twist on the traditional conference is BarCamp's “unConference”, an event where you can sign up to speak at the event and be one of many "experts".

BarCamp is an open-format conference where everyone is welcome to speak on any topic they’re passionate about. Note that sessions aren’t scheduled in advance; the agenda is created the day of the event in the spirit of an “un-conference.” You can see the schedule of daily events here.

DaVinci's Faire will connect you with Makers, Inventors, Robots, Gamers and tons of fun. And for the entrepreneurs and budding businessmen, "Pitch Perfect" coaching sessions provide lessons on how to present your “venture/potential venture,” and Quick Pitch gives chances to show off your ideas for cash prizes!

So, what's been done to create DaVinci’s Faire at BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton? We’re glad you asked!!

Imagine that, besides the traditional BarCamp experience, you would also be able to walk around a Faire containing Makers with their cool gadgets and machines, Inventors showing off their ideas and prototypes, First Robotics teams running their creations in the hallways, and a Gamers room where there will be game design sessions, discussion of advanced gaming concepts, and surely, games being played!

BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton can be described in three words: Share – Learn – Grow. Every attendee – no matter how old or young – has a story and an expertise. Come prepared to learn and share as we all grow together. Register here for DaVinci’s Faire. … and don’t even think of missing the fun.

Makers and Inventors and Robotics teams register for a table to share your “creations from.”

The weekend is FREE if you preregister at www.bcsrq.com Or pay $10 general admission at the door. Speaker registration begins at 8:40 a.m. daily, with the first sessions beginning at 10 a.m. Lunch is FREE and attendees join us for an awesome afterhours at the new Motorworks Brewery.
