BarCamp Sheffield 2.1

For anyone out there who feels like a little social hacking and can get there, Sheffield BarCamp 2.1 is coming up.

Hosted at Sheffield’s Showroom Cinema 28th -30th November 2008, it’s ‘A melting pot of community, conversation and technology’. I’m expecting presentations, hacking sessions and more than a little eating, drinking and entertainment. I reckon the attendee list looks pretty respectable (except for me, of course) so might be well worth checking it out.

There’s a load of info, and an opportunity to have a say on the content here.

Hope to see you there!
