When you arrive, you’ll see a big board with an empty grid with times along one side and rooms along another. There’ll be a stack of index cards and sharpies and people will write down topics and stick the cards to the board. Soon the whole grid will be full and voila! Instant conference.
Of course! We encourage you to post a topic to the board and give a talk/start a discussion, but you don’t have to. Also, if you don’t like the talk you’re in, use the “rule of two feet” to get up and go to a different talk.
Topics vary from the technical (“Wordpress Child Themes”) to the inspiring (“Running: Not Just for the Zombie Apocalypse”). From practiced talks (“Designing for People”) to open discussions (“Nerds w/ Kids Roundtable”).
For anyone riding a train or regional rail to 30th Street Station, transfer to the Market-Frankford (BLUE) line West to 40th street, then walk 2 blocks south to Walnut, and 2 blocks east to Huntsman Hall.

We’re sorry, but the t-shirt and the wall decals have gone to print, so we can no longer offer that perk. We can still promote your company on our twitter account as well at BarCamp.
