What is BarCamp?
BarCamp is an “unconference” – a full day of 6 sessions in 11 rooms in Wharton’s Huntsman Hall where attendees build the schedule the morning of the event. Sessions are given on a variety of topics, and the day is created collaboratively – built by the people, for the people.

BarCamp Philly will be held in Jon M. Huntsman Hall at The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. Afterwards we’re headed back to The Blarney Stone to celebrate the day!
Efficiency BarCamp Philly is a Green Zero-Waste Event. Before you use the garbage, look for a compost bin. There is also a station to refill water bottles by the bathroom to help reduce waste from plastic bottles. Help us save the planet.
