I’ve just got back from an epic weekend at OggCamp. For my money this was the best event yet. There was a great atmosphere from the start. The exhibitors and hardware hackers kept everyone entertained and the Leaf tea shop provided the fuel necessary to get through a day. We even had giant beanbags and free arcade machines that took a pounding. There were some great scheduled speakers, the live podcast was good fun, and the famous rafflecast rounded off the event in style.
But the crowd really make the event what it is. Because it’s an unconference, things can just happen spontaneously. One talk prompted questions on the version control system “git”. So three OggCampers got together and gave a talk on it an hour later. Other things that “just happened” included a good-natured showdown between Firefox OS and Ubuntu Touch, and a demonstration of tri- and quad-copters.
There were great parties too, at the Leaf on Bold Street and the Racquet Club – easily the poshest OggCamp party venue yet!
I was busy tweeting as @oggcamp throughout the weekend, accompanying this post are some of the photos from the weekend.
Thanks to the sponsors and crew who make it possible, and of course everyone who attended.

Feel fired up to give a shit about the world I live in, in a way I haven't for a while. Thanks #OGGCamp.
