This is a follow-up to my previous post, “The Fate of Barcamp Harrisburg“.
Well, while I was relatively comfortable coming to terms with barcamp ending, many of you were not, and that’s a good thing. I received a lot of supportive feedback, and as a result, Barcamp Harrisburg will go on for its seventh consecutive year with a new date and a new host for 2015.
Working with the great folks at The Tech Council of Central PA, BarCampHbg will help serve as a kickoff event for the week-long UPNEXTFEST. Formerly Harrisburg Startup Weekend, UPNEXTFEST helps to nurture the local and potential startup community.
This year’s camp is scheduled for Saturday, October 10, 2015 at ITT Technical Institute Harrisburg. It’s only a little ways from downtown, and along with the venue change comes relief from paid parking(!).
More info will be coming soon and posted to the BarCampHbg website. In the meanwhile, save the date. If you’re interested in sponsoring, please drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you there!
