BARcamp Chicago is Chicago's longest running unconference. It is a conference focusing on technology and entrepreneurial topics that is free and open to the public. All talks are given by the attendees of the conference. The schedule and talks are determined the day of the event. We have 3 tracks for talks: development, entrepreneurial, and miscellaneous.


Registration is free and helps give the organizers an accurate number of expected attendees.


Pumping Station One (3519 N. Elston Ave) will be hosting BARcamp Chicago. The doors will open at 9:30am on Saturday Sept 22nd with an introduction starting at 10am and talks following. The space will be open till 7pm or until PS1 kicks us out.
