Tune that bummer out, friend, because BarCamp Omaha is a “user‑generated” conference where the speakers are everyday free spirits talking about what they think is groovy. Talks aren’t scheduled or planned until right before things kick off, and anyone — flower children, hunks, heck, even squares — can give a talk.
Stoked, but feeling like taking the stage is a little too heavy? No sweat — don’t get uptight! Just come and hang loose.
At BarCamp, you won’t find a predetermined speaker list or a line of suits passing out business cards. What you will find is a mop‑top in a t‑shirt talking about moonshine, a web developer talking about the best practices in SEO, or a world traveler sharing their far‑out experiences.
BarCamp is a chance to network, learn something fab, and share what makes you feel outta sight!
That's up to you decide! But the general topics are:
Maker: Churn, MRR, fundraising, audio cassette tapes, or even the lemonade stand you ran when you were a kid are all fair game. This is a hip place to talk about building far-out things and/or getting dat paper.
Creative: Designing letterpress invitations, macrame pants, slideshows of your world travels or rebranding a product? This is the track for you to share your creative accomplishments and valuable lessons, man.
Tech: Building React apps in your free time? Designed an ETL pipeline? Hacked together a Raspberry Pi temperature sensor? Ready to tell the world about touch-tone telephones? Come talk about the hardware and software that you get excited about.
Kitchen Sink: Psst. I hear you made some moonshine. This track is for all those passions that don’t quite fit the mold (just like the rest of us hep cats). Surfing the gnarly waves, urban planning in your free time, making and selling acrylic decorative grapes, and organizing your closet are all welcome topics here!
