As many a woebegone paleontologist has bemoaned, “If only dinosaurs evolved with thumbs made for texting and personalities made for friending! Think of the records we’d have now had they lived in our tech-sharing age!” Today we live in a world full of technology at your fingertips. (Literally). So don’t be a dinosaur. Sign up today for BarCampNOLA and chomp on free information from talented people about technology that’ll keep your self, business, and life from going extinct.
BarCampNOLA is a free two day “unconference” where you’ll meet T. Rex-level tech folk from across NOLA who want to teach and learn about practices, procedures and particularly cool goings-on in technology worlds. On the first day, participants chew on specific topics of interest - oh, and free lunch - and then put them into practice on the second, with a hands-on project to provide a tech-based resource for a community group in need.
Like all "unconferences," topics discussed on day one will be chosen by the participants, who are encouraged to sign up to present on any topic of interest, from social media to cloud computing, mobile web design to making computer graphics work. “Rawrgistering” today gets you signed up for your free t-shirt and lunch, which you’ll enjoy as you build connections and exchange ideas with successful, entrepreneurial, and tech-minded folk from across the region. You know we gotta say it: don’t let this opportunity go extinct.

Had dinosaurs learned new tricks, they might still be around: thoughts to ponder as you build your resume, grow your business, or fulfill your dream of circus clownery.
P.S. We’re not just obsessing about dinosaurs. It’s BarCampNOLA’s theme this year.
But since we’re on the topic, do you think all the no-longer-officially-dinosaurs Brontosauruses went to live on the no-longer-an-officially-planet Pluto? --> #OurSecretExtinctionTheory
