Shareology

1,000 geeks + Learning + Shareology = Minnebar! May 26, 2010

Minnebar rocks!   One fun Saturday at Best Buy Headquarters:   

Minnebar  =  Minnesota + Tech + Design + Drinks   

What is MinneBar?   

MinneBar is an (un)conference aimed at getting those in Minnesota’s tech and design communities together to discuss topics that interest them. This spring’s event was held Saturday the 22nd of May at the Best Buy headquarters in Richfield, MN. Registration from 7:30 to 9am and sessions from 9-5:30. Light Breakfast and lunch provided. After party of complimentary snacks and beverages (Beer & Wine).   

This is Minnesota’s barcamp – an (un)conference where you are the leaders of the discussions and sessions. If you are interested in a topic just sign up to lead a discussion and like-minded folks will seek you out.   

Here’s a bit of the day:
