Barcamp Tampa '09 is coming this weekend (Sept 26th & Sept 27th) and I convinced myself to go. From what I understand, Barcamp is an unconference covering development and new media. It's an unconference insomuch as attendees signup for topics about which they would like to speak and the agenda is created on the day of the event. Last year's event apparently had developer talks on Mobile Apps, iPhone apps, Adobe AIR, WinBatch, Python, RubyonRails, Voice Apps, Project Management, Ning, Erlang, Django and PHP and new media talks on Twitter, Blogging, Rich Internet Apps, social media, podcasting, Internet Video, SEO, Contextual Ads, mobile marketing, RSS, Jelly, and VoIP.
If you are going, I hope to see you there.
BTW: Thanks to the Tampa Flash, Flex and Air Developer Group for the heads up - even though they haven't had a meeting since early March, there still might be hope for the group.
