BarCamp lands in Helsinki! Helsinki has seen some interesting international event concepts land in the city within a short time frame including Ignite and OpenCoffee Club. This Saturday is BarCamp’s turn.

BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees. Antti Akonniemi (from the IgniteHelsinki fame) is partly responsible for bringing the event to Helsinki. Along with Antti, Mari Koistinen a prominent blogger, is part of the organizing committee. Both active Jaiku users, Antti and Mari along with a few others kick started the event organizing in the Jaiku forum.

The proposed BarCamp Helsinki sessions include the following:

  • Time management
  • Creative flows
  • Case studies: Effects, aspects of use of Jaiku as organizing tool
  • Location-based services
  • Microformats for bloggers: What, why and how?
  • Scred vs BillMonk (with Peter Robinett

The event takes place in the new Fjord offices on Saturday 10th May.
