While we were looking forward to hosting the 13th annual BarCamp Tampa Bay in October, the year 2020 had other plans. After conducting a poll of the tech ecosystem and loyal BarCamp Tampa Bay community, we have decided to cancel the event and pick up again next year.

Stay tuned for information about our 2021 event plans which will include Ignite Tampa Bay on April 1st (Why Not). Applications to speak at Ignite will open up toward the end of this year and we expect to see some wild ideas. In the meantime, make sure you are following all of our social media accounts for updates and opportunities to participate, volunteer, and sponsor.

Speakers at a Barcamp

What kind of sessions and speakers can you expect?
This is a day of learning for our attendees who represent all coding languages and supporting technologies in the Tampa Bay and surrounding areas. Expect some very exciting sessions planned for and by our developer community with related topics such as  User Experience (UX), design, startups and many more.  We have a number of videos of sessions posted on our YouTube channel. This video is a compilation of BarCamp topics and can be found here. If you have a topic you want to share with the tech community, BarCamps by tradition do their sign ups the morning of the event on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration starts at 7:45am and sessions begin at 9:00am. Sessions last 50 minutes and we recommend that you plan for about 20 to 25 minutes for your presentation followed by an interactive question and answer session. If you would like to learn more about how to do a BarCamp session, you can check here or here.
