DesignHammer Sponsors BarCampRDU 2013

BarCamp and DesignHammer LogosDurham, NC — DesignHammer will continue its sponsorship of the Raleigh-Durham BarCamp for 2013. This marks the seventh year for BarCampRDU and the fourth year of sponsorship by DesignHammer.

BarCampRDU is a “un-conference” where attendees of the event can watch as well as engage as educators with their peers. The event is open to the public and driven entirely by content created by those attending the event making for a unique, entertaining and educational experience.

BarCamps have developed worldwide, bringing together professionals from various industries to share their knowledge with peers. Other industries that have taken advantage of the BarCamp format include Real Estate, Marketing, Healthcare, and Education. There are also more topic specific conferences within the technology field that cover cloud computing, design, privacy, and UX sessions throughout the day for those interested in a highly focused event.

In addition to sponsoring the event, DesignHammer’s staff will be in attendance to pitch their own presentations, and contribute through participation in session’s often lively discussions.

According to DesignHammer Account Manager Stephen Pashby “I have been looking forward to BarCampRDU 2013 since last one in 2011. It is a great opportunity to connect with other members of our local tech community to learn and share knowledge in such a collaborative atmosphere.”

“I always look forward to BarCamp. It's a great way to learn new things and meet other people in the Triangle development community,” added DesignHammer Developer Jay Roberts.

DesignHammer Partner David Minton, who has attended BarCampRDU five times further added “I am very happy that some great people came together to continue BarCampRDU this year, after the conference failed to get enough support to happen last year.”

For those that cannot attend, the BarCamp sessions are usually covered by live bloggers and can be followed as it happens by searching for the BarCampRDU tag as well as following along with @BarCampRDU and #BarCampRDU on Twitter.

The event will be held at the NCSU Centennial Campus Engineering Building 2 in Raleigh this Saturday, March 18th from 8:00–5:00pm, with lunch served in the RedHat building meeting area. Reservations to attend the conference are available through the BarCampRDU website, though attendance is limited to 200. For more information, visit the BarCampRDU website.
