What is DemoCamp?
It’s an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. The focus of DemoCamp is "Show, don't tell" and will see 4-8 new products demoed to the Calgary tech community for feedback, awareness and support. DemoCamps typically last between 1.5 and 2 hours.
What do you mean by ad-hoc?
This isn't a serious, formal, traditional event. Volunteers collaborate to create “unconferences”, where the focus is on building community and soliciting open feedback. You can help out by telling your friends about the event, and asking interesting companies to present at a DemoCamp and showing up yourself to lend a hand to the companies that are showing off their new products.
Does it cost anything to attend?
No, but we will have beer on hand to purchase ($5 a beer)
Sounds cool. What are the Rules?
There aren’t a lot of rules, but the rules we have are set in stone.
Rule #1: Talk about DemoCamp. Tell your friends, and bring someone interesting to the next event.
Rule #2: No powerpoint or slideshow allowed. Why no .ppt? Well, do you have working piece of software or don’t you?
Rule #3: Demos are not a second over 10 minutes each. Short and sweet! And follow with Q&A for about 3-4 minutes max.
Rule #4: There are no more rules. We’ll continue to do what’s right for the community.
