Well I was a little late getting here, but I managed to make my way from the island to attend Moosecamp at the UBC Robson Square campus in Vancouver.
I've attended a couple of sessions so far and am looking forward to learning more. I really like the "unconference" nature of the event.
The informal approach seems to benefit both presenters and attendees and allows for flexibility and self-selection in terms of sessions and "sidebars" on topics of interest. moosecamp was a lot of fun and I hope it's going to be an annual event.
