MadLab BarCamp Manchester: your 2-day annual overnight unconference

BarCamp Manchester: your 2-day annual overnight unconference

Posted by Claire Dodd, about 1 month ago

MadLab is sponsoring BarCamp Manchester!

A BarCamp is an unconference that every attendee is allowed to participate in, much like anyone can have a blog, or can edit Wikipedia. The distinction between speakers and listeners is blurred because if you are attending, you will be speaking too. Sessions become less like lectures, and more like conversations.

BarCamp Manchester 7 is a 2 day tech un-conference, where people with passion come to share knowledge, learn new things and meet new people. Holding two full days of 30 minute talks, attendees are also welcome to come armed with a sleeping bag and camp out in the venue for the full weekend.

IMG_20150926_161814Whether you’re new to the Manchester community or you’re a fully fledged member, BarCamp Manchester is a great way to get stuck in and immerse yourself in a growing community of doers. People from all across Greater Manchester, the North West and beyond, get together for BarCamp to create a community of people who want to make a change, share knowledge and get things done.

From startups to scientists, coders to creatives, and mathematicians to makers, the BarCamp community is for everyone and open to everything, so come along and share your knowledge (and play some killer games of Werewolf!)

Unique to 2016, BarCamp Manchester is also hosting a number of taster session style workshops on the Sunday to celebrate the final day of National Coding Week!

24568638883_416b6cb034_oIf you would like to join any of the National Coding Week event workshops, you will also need to register for each workshop in addition to registering for BarCamp Manchester. Places are limited, workshops cost £3-5 each to book and you will need to provide your own laptop with the latest version of chrome or firefox installed. The booking fee is refundable on completion of the workshop (or you can leave it as a donation to the event). If you would really like to come, and this cost is an issue, please email

You can also check out the full week long programme of events, organised in conjunction with MadLab and CodeUp here.
