Rochester's Geek Unconference

BarCamp Rochester is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. BarCamp Rochester is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees. All attendees should give a demo, a session, or help with one. All presentations are scheduled the day they happen. Prepare in advance, but come early to get a good slot on the schedule.
