Everything You Wanted To Know About Google -- But Were Afraid To Search For!

(cross post from WaveAdept)

[disclosure: I am part of the volunteers helping to create this event]
From Android to Wave, Google Apps for your company to SEO for your website AND everything in between ...
Thursday 25th March, 2010: 8:30am-4pm
Bar Bodega, 101 Ghuznee Street, Wellington [map]
Ticket price: $0

The world's first free and independent Google-centric barcamp* is being held in Wellington on Thursday 25th March (8:30am-4pm) and we at WaveAdept are chuffed to be amongst the plethora of local, national and international sponsors of this community run event.

Of course a Google-centric conference could probably run for a week trying to cover all aspects of the Google services so we'll be concentrating WaveAdept's efforts on how Google Enterprise services save costs and provide value to Kiwi companies.

We won't, however, be using the event to push our services or Google products (that's for the more traditional events) but trying to get into the guts of what we in New Zealand think of the Google Enterterprise services (particularly Google Apps). For instance I have popped a proposed topic of, "Support from Google, what it is, what it isn't and what the gap is (and how to overcome it)" and Dave has just this minute added, "Biggest gaps - what is preventing wider adoption of Google Apps in your opinion, what is missing?"

We hope to not only see you all there (maximum of 150 spaces, over 80 have already been taken) but to have a good old yarn about Google which, let's be honest, is a fascinating subject on so many levels.

* A barcamp is a normal conference with one major difference, it is run by the attendees. This truly comes into play when the conference schedule is generated by all the attendees during the registration time, so get in early and mold this conference to what you want to talk/hear about.


  1. Barcamps should have been invented a long time ago. I have gone to a lot of seminars that had as much as 90 percent that I did not need but paid for.
