About BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton

What is BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton?

Barcamp Sarasota-Bradenton is a self-organizing group of professionals who desire to advance technology through free-discussion and shared learnings. It's also an annual “Un-conference,” or rather, a conference without a predefined agenda, without a fixed schedule, and without remorse. Our open format offers attendees the unique opportunity to network, learn, and communicate about what they are most passionate about! In addition to a giant yearly DaVinci’s Faire and un-conference event, BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton also runs many community activities.

Through our annual conferences, our bi-monthly “After-hours” social events, “Network and Learns,” and our community partnerships – we bring together resources like no other group in west Florida. We are people. We are events. We are conversations and connections. We are BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton!

BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton events are free to attend.


DaVinci’s Faire and BarCamp

At a BarCamp Unconference, a group of enthusiastic people gather to share their knowledge about business, technology, design and anything else they are interested in. They do this by attending presentations given by other attendees – and by giving presentations themselves, of course. A BarCamp presentation can be as formal or informal as you like. You can go to any session you like, and if you don’t find that session interesting, you can feel free to leave and go to another. Everyone is encouraged to give a session or participate in whatever way they can, and at any age.

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, the latest in 3D printing, First Robotics teams running their creations in the hallways, Drones flying throught the air, and a Gamers room where there will be game design sessions, discussion of advanced gaming concepts, and games being played!

We also have a hall dedicated to a Science & Engineering Faire, a wing of classrooms dedicated to technology-specific topics based on any tech platform, and pitch coaching and quick-pitch competition for entrepreneurs where small cash prizes are given to the winners but all benefit from professional coaching.

When sessions aren’t running, there’s usually other fun stuff happening: food and drink, games, robots throwing frisbees, conversation, flying drones, silliness, and people hacking on projects and building things. Don’t be afraid, there’s lots of good stuff going on at BarCamp.
