Following the success of the first two Irish BarCamps in Cork and Waterford, we are pleased to announce that BarCamp Dublin will be held in the Digital Hub on Saturday 21st April 2007.

BarCamp is a technology-focused, ad-hoc gathering of passionate folks who want to share, interact and spread the love around what they spend their days and nights toiling away on.

It is an informal gathering of people from technical and business backgrounds, where information and experiences are exchanged. The event is geared towards sharing knowledge and learning from others and there is a policy of encouraging active participation in all discussions.

BarCamp is free. However, we strongly encourage attendees to sign up so we can gauge how many will attend and plan accordingly. Signing up can be done by adding your name to the Wiki at or by e-mailing to

More information on our sponsors will be released soon.

The organizational team for this event is as follows:

Elly Parker

Joe Drumgoole

Paul Walsh

Eoghan McCabe

On a personal note, I’d like to thank both Tom Raftery and John Breslin. I’m in Arizona this week and have been in long meetings all day, so I missed the whole discussion and requests asking them to consider postponing BarCamp Cork and BarCamp Galway, respectively. I’m delighted to see the spirit of collaboration between the Irish bloggers!

I have to apologise as well, we have been planning this for a few weeks now, but had decided to hold off on releasing any solid details until we had managed to confirm our venue and date. The organizing team is hoping to have a meeting next week, so hopefully we will have some more details for you then. Thanks to everyone for their help so far.
