The guys and gals over at Web414, Bucketworks and a whole bunch of other people have been working feverishly over the last couple of months to plan out the second Barcamp based in Milwaukee. Barcamp is a neat experience where you get a group of people together and talk about technology and non-technology topics. Barcamps are done in an unconference style where there is a lose organization around what topics will be covered (this can be a little disconcerting if you have only attended traditional conferences, but don’t worry – you get used to it quickly and when it doubt, just ask someone). Because the event is so fluid, I would encourage you to keep checking the main site http://barcampmilwaukee.com/ for event details as they unfold.
There is only one real “rule” to barcamps and that is that everyone is expected to participate in the event. That can mean giving a quick session on something, or at the very least getting involved in the discussions during a session (it is real hard to not get involved). Participating in the event can also be as simple as bringing some duck tape along with you.
