DaVinci's Faire and BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton Spring Conference

  • 0

SARASOTA, Fla. -- “DaVinci’s Faire” – a weekend of learning, wonder, and amazement... A free event 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".

DaVinci's Faire will connect you with Makers, Inventors, Robots, Gamers, Entrepreneurs, STEM proponents, and tons of fun. The agenda is created during the day of the event, a standard for all BarCamps. This year, there is a two-day event scheduled – Saturday and Sunday. Besides speakers, you can 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.

The event and lunch each day is FREE for those that preregister at Eventbrite. Or pay $10 general admission at the door. Admission includes refreshments in the morning and free coffee throughout the day. Speaker registration begins at 8:40 a.m. daily, with the first sessions beginning at 10 a.m.

Makers and Inventors and Robotics teams should register for a table to share their creations. Interested in speaking or sponsoring to keep this event free? contact@bcsrq.com


Doors open at 8:15 each morning (Makers setup at 7:30), with Board Rush for speaker sign-up at 8:40. Daily opening is at 9:00, and talks begin at 9:30 in half-hour slots.

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.
