SXSW 2012 Events: Find a Co-Founder and BarCamp
Last week I noted that there will be a hackathon during SXSW. Two more interesting events have popped up on my radar that are worth checking out.
Startup incubators DreamIt Ventures and Austin’s Capital Factory are holding a series of “find a cofounder” dating-style events during SXSW. You can find all of the details and registration form here. The sessions will be held on Saturday and Sunday and it does look like you will need a SXSW badge to participate. The two accelerators will also be holding two co-founder panels on Saturday and Sunday.
On Sunday March 10, BarCampATX will be held at the Black Sheep Lodge. The event is free although they do ask for donations. I think BarCamps are the original “unconference” – there will be 45 – 20 minute sessions throughout the day. It looks like this is a badgeless event – so anyone in town can attend. The organizers ask that you register here. Here’s the overview for this year’s BarCampATX, “BarCamp is a general developer / tech un-conference with an open source slant. Topics need not be technical, so long as they relate to technology and/or development. This year’s theme is “Discover Something New” so new techniques, new apps, new ways of doing things are all great starting points.”
