Barcamp Charlotte 3 recap

Posted on 12 Apr 2010 by James Willamor

Barcamp Charlotte 3 took place on Saturday, bringing together technology, design and creativity at Area Fifteen. Around 150 attendees pitched ideas for sessions and then voted on their favorites.

Sessions ranged from freelancing, to civics 101, budget film making, Google, social media, mobile development, tips on marketing, and an intro to massage therapy.

One session even included a field trip, lead by D.I. von Briesen, to tour the Ecobox sustainable building project at CPCC. One of the last sessions of the day included a discussion on how to standardize Twitter hastags within the Charlotte community.

Check out Eric Frazier’s barcamp recap in the Observer, Eric Orozco’s thoughts on what was missing from barcamp, photos of the event by Tom Bonner and Andy Ciordia, and see what others are saying  about Barcamp Charlotte 3 on Twitter.
