Barcamps are free, a great way to increase subject knowledge and to network.
Barcamps usually create their own agenda at their start, and this one is no different.
Here are some details from their email announcement:
ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery SF Bay Area -- the professional
organization for those who work in computing -- is putting on a one-day
Data Mining Camp this Saturday in San Jose at the offices of eBay.
Registration starts at 11:15; the event's close will be at 7:30p.
Anyone interested in data mining, cloud computing, or related fields is
welcome to attend. There is no charge. Lunch and dinner will be provided.
We will have a recruiting session during the event, open to all job seekers
and all recruiters/hiring managers.
At an "unconference", any attendee is welcome to present a session (space available) -- just ask. We will provide a classroom and a time slot. Also,an excellent plenary opening session will feature many top people in the field.
A pre-conference class from 9 to 11:30a will be presented by Salford
