Once again, I was a volunteer helper at BarCamp London9 at City University this past weekend, the fourth London BarCamp which I have helped out with, and the 30th BarCamp I have attended! We got bright orange t-shirts and fake moustaches…As usual, it was pretty hectic, so this time around, I didn’t have the chance to take many photos. But I was able to spare some time to give a presentation of my own. I chose to talk about gaming strategies for Carcassonne – a board game much favoured by me and some of my geek friends. As well as playing the physical game, I also have an electronic version for iPhone/iPad which keeps me quiet on the train when I commute from time to time (the screenshots were done from the iPad version). Download the slides as a PDF (6Mb) or view the embedded presentation below.
As well as the general session slots, @thehodge and his glamourous assistant @alistair also organised some evening entertainment in the form of a BarCamp Fortunes* Quiz. This culminated in two of the opponents fighting it out by bashing a piñata for sweets. I only caught this with my iPhone, but it was pretty silly!
So, that’s about all for this post! Here are a few more pictures:
