BarcampSWFL + JuniorCamp
Barcamp Southwest Florida has announced their 1st conference will be held on Saturday, January 30th from 9:00am-4:00pm at the Edison State College, Fort Myers Campus. Registration for this free educational event is available at

BarCamp is an international network of ‘un-conferences,’ where the content is provided by the participants. Attendees register for the event and are invited to prepare a workshop on blogging, social media, personal branding, new technology, public relations, citizen journalism, digital photography or graphic design. At the BarCamp kick-off, speakers sign up for slots on a first-come basis. Guests may see as many as eight different educational presentations in a high-energy, fast-paced day.

Early BarCamp events focused on web applications and open source technologies. However, the un-conference format has evolved into discussion on public transit, health care and political organization. In the spirit of open source sharing, BarCamp Southwest Florida is a free event supported by local businesses: Jaguar Data Systems, Inc.;; Beverage Underground; Office Depot; Ghost Executive Group; and Pauli Systems, LLC. Additional sponsorships are available, for more information on sponsorships, email

Barcamp Southwest Florida will offer a special track for K-12 students. Among the workshops for the JuniorCamp will be responsible social media usage. The goal for engaging the students is to encourage positive growth in their passions for technology.

Speakers have already come forward to discuss Blogger, Wordpress, Grüpii, RSS Feed and Social Media, Social Media Strategy, Web Design, and Personal Branding. For more information, or to register, visit
