BarCamp is an international network of user-generated conferences (or unconferences). They are open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants.
BarCamps focused on early-stage web applications, open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats, social media, marketing and advertising, blogging and jounalism.
The format has also been used for a variety of other topics, including public transit, health care, and political organizing.
