What is a barcamp?

Barcamps are informal sessions, a kind of "un-conference", with a schedule decided on the day. It is all driven by the interests and expertise of those who attend, so each one is different, but ours are always great!

Although the barcamp night doesn't have a straight-out schedule, it won't be completely devoid of structure! #bbuzz barcamps are dynamic events, focused on the overall Berlin Buzzwords topics, tackling the same challenges, but in a different format. At the barcamp, each session runs for 30 minutes, giving enough time to get into the meat of a topic, but without a chance for anyone to get bored. These are participatory sessions and more inclusive than regular conference talks, with everyone taking part. You can help by leading the session, by giving some insights, by asking some great questions, or maybe just with your enthusiasm.

Come along again for great discussions and knowledge sharing with your fellow attendees, on all the hot topics from the conference, and all those we could not squeeze into the conference days!

Sessions will be decided upon on the day, but are likely to focus on topics such as:

  • Beyond Hadoop v1: Mesos, Hadoop and Storm
  • Taking NoSQL into new areas
  • NoSQL in the real world - what to pick, how to cope when it breaks, etc.
  • Logging, monitoring and managing at scale
  • Science in a grid-free Big Data World
  • ElasticSearch, SOLR and Lucene,
  • and many others!
