BarCamp Canterbury is an unconference that is a completely free to attend and based loosely around the theme of:

innovative, unusual, and amusing examples of information and technology

BarCamp Canterbury is a technology conference with a difference. It's more like a gathering of enthusiastic people that are into tech, gadgets, science, or just about anything else that's geeky and fun. There will be plenty of entertaining sessions and workshops on the day, and when sessions aren’t running, there’s usually other fun stuff happening: food and drink, games, conversation, silliness, and people hacking on projects. You can go to any session you like, and if you don’t find a session interesting, you can leave and go to another.

There is very little in the way of a formalised programme for the event and sessions will be finalised on the day.

This event is not being run by William (FuzzyFox) however is going to be attended by him. The event organisers approached William as a Mozilla Rep to ask for sponsorship for the event.

Dates for the event are yet to be finalised however the event will be run around Easter 2012

So why Canterbury?...

The historic city of Canterbury is ideally placed between London and the gateway to Europe and as such is arguably the most important city within Kent. With three Universities, a smattering of colleges, and some of the finest schools in the county; this makes for one of the greatest concentrations of learning within such a small space. The city also boasts a vibrant small business community, a lot of which based on technology and information. Add to this a high degree of tourism, a progressive music and arts scene, and some of the finest shops, bars, and restaurants in Kent; it is easy to understand why Canterbury is fast becoming the most vibrant business and technology centre in the South-East.
