Bitnorth is an annual informal, eclectic gathering a bit north of Montreal. The format is participatory: if you attend, you have to present. The things we discuss are wide-ranging (think Barcamp-meets-TED.) It’s also fast-paced, since each presentation lasts only 10 minutes.
Now in its fourth year, Bitnorth is a weekend-long conference North of Montreal.
- It’s one part TED, because the topics are varied and eclectic.
- It’s one part Ignite, because presentations take only 5-10 minutes
- It’s one part Fight Club, because if you come, you have to present
- It’s one part Summer Camp, because it happens by a lake and the food isn’t very good.
Now in its fourth year, it’s a lot of learning and a lot of fun. It’s also a fairly small event—the camp can’t handle more than 60 people, and there are only so many presentations we can sit through. This means it sells out fast, and we’re opening up registration to alumni and invited guests first. If there’s room, we’ll open up registration to anyone who wants to attend.
