BarCamp Omaha

Techies • Creatives • Entrepreneurs • ALL Passionate People invited!


BarCamp is an "un-conference", or rather a conference without a speaker list, without a fixed schedule, and without remorse. Our open format offers attendees the unique opportunity to network, learn, and communicate about what they are passionate about! BarCamp conferences are held all over the world, but at BarCamp Omaha we do something special. Uniting techies, creatives, and entrepreneurs, we are not merely a "tech conference" or a "design conference." Instead, we strive to include all local innovators and give you a platform to learn, teach, and explore the limits of your creativity. The goals for BarCamp are simple: come with an open mind and share your passions!

Do I have to give a talk to attend BarCamp?

Nope! If you'd rather just sit and listen and get inspired, you can do that too!

How do I get my BarCamp t-shirt?

Tees are made possible by the sweet folks at Omaha Code School. Tees are ordered before the event and when purchasing a ticket you may choose your size. The tees are Next Level men's sized tri-blend crew. 

Due to the nature of having tees available on the day of the event, we send the order at the beginning of August. We add in an estimation contingency so everyone gets a tee. We cannot guarantee your indicated size from registration will still be available the day of the event, so pick up your shirt early in the morning! Use the tee ticket you'll receive Saturday morning and head to the merch table to pick up your tee or any other special BarCamp merch you've been looking for.


Is my ticket transferrable?

If you're unable to attend BarCamp after purchasing your ticket, contact Josh at to transfer or refund your ticket. Ability to do so expires after August 21, 2015.


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Nope, you don't need to – save those trees! Just be sure to bring your ID for check-in at the opening party so you can get your drink ticket.

We're inclusive of everyone. Take a moment to read our Code of Conduct.
