Our power multiplies when we share ideas. Come join the conversation.
BeeBCamp is a company-wide meeting for BBC people interested in new media, from Flash animation to gaming, mobile media to social networking.
BeeBCamp brings together technical innovators and boundary-pushing producers from across the BBC in an informal, creative environment. It’s a chance to get together and talk about what’s new or exciting in new media – to share stories, get excited, learn something new about our work and each other. It’s a chance to get immersed in a fertile atmosphere for new ideas and meet the people making some of the most cutting-edge content and technology in the world.
Too often, technical innovation and creativity in content exist in isolation. BeeBCamp breaks down the barriers between tech and creative communities inside and outside the BBC. It’s a unique atmosphere where everyone participates in an informal, open forum. As an ongoing movement within the BBC, BeeBCamp has started linking people from across differentdivisions who might otherwise never have met.
BeebCamp is an unconference, organized along similar principles to Barcamp. It’s informal, direct and conversational. Multiple sessions run in parallel throughout the day, rotating at 30 minute intervals. Sessions are not planned in advance: everyone writes their name and the subject of their session on a white board at the beginning of the day. Most people attending should have a chance to speak, and everyone is encouraged to have something to say – everyone gets a chance to pin their name up on the board in the morning.
BeeBCamp is an open, collaborative conference, and we’ll do our best to keep you up to date as the big day approaches.
