We're proud to announce Grand Rapids' fourth BarCamp. BarCamp is a technology & design unconference where the campers (you) determine what's on the schedule. These ad-hoc unconferences are intense events with discussions, demos, and a chance to interact with fellow attendees. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to participate.

WHEN: Friday evening, August 21 and Saturday, August 22

WHERE: Calvin College -- DeVos Communications Center

COST: Free! But everyone is encouraged to present something and be involved, even if you're never given a talk before.

WHAT: ??? -- ultimately each camper has an opportunity to help determine the content.
