BarCamp Apache Oxford 2009
4-5 April, University Club, Mansfield Road
(Main event on the 5th; pre-BarCamp party on the evening of the 4th)

OSS Watch, Torchbox and The Apache Software Foundation are pleased to
announce Barcamp Apache Oxford 2009, an opportunity for people
involved in the computing and technology fields to meet informally and
find about each others' projects. The event is free and open to
anyone, whether from business, academia or neither. It will focus on
open source, not least through the involvement of The Apache Software
Foundation, one of the largest open source foundations in the world.
In particular, we encourage engagement with the following areas:

- Open development techniques and practices
- Web 2.0 style data mashups
- Use of and engagement with The Apache Software Foundation's projects

BarCamps (http://www.barcamp.org/) are informal! , ad-hoc gatherings.
There are no fixed speakers, talks or topics. Instead, they rely on
the participation of attendees. Here are some ways you could

- present (informally or formally) about your favourite project
- hack together a mashup with other attendees' systems
- play devil's advocate in a lively debate
- have a drink with someone you have never met before

Every attendee is encouraged (though not required) to offer a
presentation; exactly what will happen, though, will be decided among
the participants on the day. The day will be divided into multiple
sessions, with a number of activities happening at once.

If you are interested, please see the Barcamp Oxford web page above,
where you can get more information or sign yourself up as an attendee.
Any offers of assistance or equipment would also be welcomed.

--- Pre-BarCamp party, on the evening of the 4th: details will follow
later on the web! page ---

has two ideas.   -  George Bernard Shaw
