BarCamps have been held around the world in locations like Zimbabwe, Myanmar and England. They've also been held as close as Milwaukee and Madison. In September, Fond du Lac will add its name to that list.

BarCamp Fond du Lac will make its debut on Saturday, Sept. 14 at Marian University's Stayer Center. The event kicks off at 8 a.m. when attendees begin to get their ideas on paper.

BarCamp is a participatory "un-conference," where attendees are in charge of what they learn about. People interested in teaching and learning in an open environment can come together to share their knowledge and experience.

BarCamp Fond du Lac, organized by a group of technologists, artists and thinkers, is designed to be a free-flow of information and an opportunity to network.

"BarCamp is about discovery - of ideas, of friends, of local groups and activities and the connections we can make between them," said Joshua Cowles, a BarCamp Fond du Lac organizer. BarCampers can attend this event free of charge.

At other BarCamps people have learned about robots, Drupal, elevator hacking, Ruby on Rails, video-editing, technology solutions for non-profits and photo walks. They've played Nintendo Wii, Guitar Hero and Werewolf and saw immersive 3D environments. They've talked about gadgets, software development, art and community building...the list goes on.
