    BarCamp is supposed to be an alternative to invitation-only FooCamp; also foobar reference.

    BarCamp is an international network of user-generated conferences (or unconferences).

    The first BarCamp was held in Palo Alto, California, from August 19?21, 2005, in the offices of Socialtext

    Foo Camp, and O’Reilly invitation-only event.

    BarCamp, the unconference in response to Foo Camp’s exclusivity.


  5. Quoting wikipedia

    In 2005, a complementary alternative BarCamp (2) was created by a past attendee of Foo Camp (1) and a few individuals who were interested in organizing their own version of Foo Camp, and hosted at the Socialtext offices in Palo Alto, California by Socialtext founder Ross Mayfield, with an open invitation to anyone who wanted to join.

    Foo camp was slightly snooty about the attendee list.

    The name BarCamp is a playful allusion to the event’s origins, with reference to the programmer slang term, foobar: BarCamp arose as an open-to-the-public alternative to Foo Camp, which is an annual invitation-only (for Friends of O’Reilly) participant-driven conference hosted by Tim O’Reilly.

    Started as a joke about using dot.com bust offices as a “Foo Bar” (Play on “FUBAR”) Morphed into Foo Camp. An “un-conference” for hackers. The Foo Bar did eventually come to be.

    foo camp and bar camp.

    Foo Camp is an annual hacker event hosted by publisher O’Reilly Media. O’Reilly describes it as “the wiki of conferences”, where the program is developed by the attendees at the event, using big whiteboard schedule templates that can be rewritten or overwritten by attendees to optimize the schedule. … The event started as a joke between Tim O’Reilly and Sara Winge, O’Reilly’s VP of Corporate Communications. Sara had always wanted to run a foo bar, an open bar for Friends of O’Reilly, at one of O’Reilly’s conferences. That joke morphed into a brainstorm after the dot com bust left O’Reilly with lots of unused office space in its new buildings, creating the opportunity for Foo Camp. There was eventually a Foo Bar at the camp.

    BarCamp arose as an open-to-the-public alternative to Foo Camp, which is an annual invitation-only (for Friends of O’Reilly) participant-driven conference hosted by Tim O’Reilly.

    BarCamp is an international network of user-generated conferences. The first BarCamps focused on early-stage web applications, and were related to open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats. The format has also been used for a variety of other topics, including public transit, health care, and political organizing. Venues typically provide basic services. Free network access, usually WiFi, is crucial. Following the model of Foo Camp, the venue also makes space for the attendees, or BarCampers, to literally camp out overnight. Thus, BarCamps rely on securing sponsorship, ranging from the venue and network access to beverages and food.
    Attendance is typically monetarily free and generally restricted only by space constraints. Participants are typically encouraged to sign up in advance.
