BarCamp Milwaukee is the premier event for Milwaukeeans to learn, teach and imagine anything!

This event is open to anyone with an interest, an idea or a desire to learn and connect with other people. Since the first BarCamp in the US nine years ago, hundreds of BarCamps have been organized throughout the world. Participation is free. Please visit BarCampMilwaukee.org or call 414-301-1414 to register and for more information.
