My first ever Barcamp – 2 in 1 (Leeds + Ottawa)

BarcampLeeds is almost there, yes it is on tomorrow. This will be my first barcamp and I am really looking forward to it. I have been told that it is an event where you focus less on sales and marketing, but more on open dialogue, perhaps around a common theme. Instead of talking about e-invoicing, I have opted to talk about edocr without actually sounding like a sales pitch. Paul Robinson has helped me greatly to come up with a theme. So here goes…

Companies chosen for this event include meecard, BizBox, Yuuguu and edocr. Don’t you love Imran Ali for coming up with these great initiatives?
