BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees, usually centered around design & technology topics. If you're not familiar with what BarCamp is, I'd recommend reading the rules.

Who Anyone in Grand Rapids, MI (and surrounding areas) who loves technology or design.
When Friday evening, August 21 and Saturday, August 22, 2009. See the schedule for more information.
Where Calvin College, Grand Rapids, MI -- DeVos Communications Center
