New, new, newness

We are excited to announce, not only a new partnership with CPCC and The Geek Fest but a new website too.  With the new face lift we are hoping to provide you with a more informative and interactive website.  If there is something you’d like to see on our website, contact us at

Everyone is invited!

Be sure to spread the word about BarCampCLT 8 and forward this email to your friends! With the new venue we can seat even more people. So help us get them there by sharing your plans to attend with your friends.

Eat anything you want!

This time we are doing something different with lunch.  Since we are centrally located with lots of great restaurants around us, we are setting you free for lunch.   To help this along, we have extended the lunch break to a full 90 minutes.  You can go to a restaurant or pack a lunch and eat on the lawn outside.  If you opt for a restaurant, we have compiled a list of some of the nearby restaurants. It is isn’t an all-inclusive list but it should get you started thinking. Here’s our list:

T-shirt collection…

As you all know, we work very hard to bring you a free event.  In the past, we have been fortunate enough to have enough sponsors to provide attendees with free t-shirts.  We had the shirts designed (see below) but unfortunately we didn’t get a sponsor to cover the cost. So, at the time of writing this, we don’t have t-shirts ordered.  If you are like us, you have a collection of past BarCampCLT shirts and would hate to be missing one we have come up with a few options.  First, we can make the design available on BarCamp Charlotte’s Spreadshirt store.  Second, if we get enough pre-orders or donations for t-shirts we can have them printed. They would be approximately $10 each. There is a minimum order of 20 shirts. If you are interested in that option, you can PayPal the money directly to If we don’t get enough we will refund the money through PayPal.

So it never ends, almost…

We are almost as excited for the after party as we are for the main event.  After all the fun of the day, it is great to unwind with new and old friends.  Queue Kickstand Charlotte. They will be allowing us to invade their bar area for the night.  We will be meeting up there at 5:30p (or earlier if you want to go straight over to the after party).  So don’t forget your wallets and conversation because you will definitely want to join the after party.

Give us the details…

We are finishing up the details of parking and directions to the event. We will get those to you next week. So stay tuned!

You just love working for free?

So do we! If you are interested in volunteering at BarCampCLT 8, just drop us an email at We will be happy to put you to work.  It will be a light workload that day.  Which means you will still have time to pitch and attend sessions.  That little bit of extra helps makes for much less frazzled organizers.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact us or reach out to us on social media.
