beCamp 2008 Rocked!

Eric Pugh — May 13, 2008

Well, the thank you notes to sponsors and volunteers have been written and mailed, the venue has been cleaned up, and the accounting for funds spent has been dealt with. beCamp 2008 is officially complete, and what a wonderful experience it has been!

I want to thank the over 90 geeks that showed up to spend 36 hours sharing what they know, learning from each other, and pitching in to make beCamp flow smoothly. I know of no other approach to conferences that has such high signal to noise ratio with such a low level of administrative overhead. Id say it turned the Pareto Principle on its head, and 80% of the effort came from 80% of the participants!

Thank you very much beCampers, and see you next year!
