BarCamp7 Manchester

  • City Labs

A BarCamp is an unconference that every attendee is allowed to participate in, much like anyone can have a blog, or can edit Wikipedia. The distinction between speakers and listeners is blurred because if you are attending, you will be speaking too. Sessions become less like lectures, and more like conversations.

BarCamp Manchester 7 is a 2 day tech un-conference, where people with passion come to share knowledge, learn new things and meet new people. We will be holding two full days of 30 minute talks, and attendees are welcome to come armed with a sleeping bag and camp out in the venue for the full weekend.

Whether you’re new to the Manchester community or you’re a fully fledged member, BarCamp Manchester is a great way to get stuck in and immerse yourself in a growing community of doers. People from all across Greater Manchester, the North West and beyond, get together for BarCamp to create a community of people who want to make a change, share knowledge and get things done.

From startups to scientists, coders to creatives, and mathematicians to makers, the BarCamp community is for everyone and open to everything, so come along and share your knowledge.

The Real Value of Women in Business

  • RBS Spinningfields

An excellent evening with a full house. Interesting debate regarding agile / flexible working, and whether the tech to work from home is a blessing or a curse.

Some great listening including reference to 'benevolent sexism' - one issue that arose - in this episode of BBC 'Peter Day's World of Business'.
