TechCamp is the Irish version of FooCamp and BarCamp ( Following on from James Corbett’s post on why Ireland can’t have more get togethers like they do in the States, we’ve decided to hold the first (of many!) collaborative meetings.

They can rest assured that if they need any help, the original Bar Campers will be available to answer any questions they might have.

In any case, good luck to them!
