This past weekend, Daxko was able to play host to the 7th BarCamp Birmingham. This was my first foray into a true “unconference” where the agenda is set as people arrive with their ideas and presentations in hand. Admittedly, the planner in me was a little nervous about not having a set agenda, but I tried my best to go with the flow.
We had two session tracks running concurrently and the topics ran the gamut from “Thinking Like a Tester” led by our very own Butch Mayhew (@ButchMayhew), to “What I Learned about Project Management From Doing the ADDYS” from Caperton Gillett (@CapertonG). The energy from Harris Reynolds (@harrisreynolds) when talking about ShiptBirmingham’s upcoming grocery delivery platform was contagious! The topics were as varied as the personalities in the room.
When it was all said and done, I was so glad to have been a part of a great event with some awesome local tech folks (and a few out-of-towners). Curious about what others had to say about the event? Check out #barcampbham or #bhambarcamp on Twitter to read more.
