BarCamp New Orleans 2008

Very cool event coming up, BarCamp New Orleans:

Let’s get a bunch of Gulf Coast geeks together and build something for someone who needs our help.

Maybe it’s time we do a BarCamp here in New Orleans. In addition to connecting digital folks, sharing what we know and what we’re working on, maybe we can pick a team project to do as well.

I’d like to find a struggling small business we could help immediately with a new site or enhanced Web services. Spend a weekend cranking as a team and launch the thing at the end of the weekend. We can get help from our friends everywhere with regard to code, design, ideas. Brains, we have them at the ready.

Date: February 16th and 17th, 2008

Where: Voodoo Ventures offices, 757 St. Charles Avenue, Suite 301

I won’t be able to attend, but the excellent Brian Oberkirch will be there. Also check out the video below for more details:
