Session Release: Start your #bcn11 Plan of Attack

You’ve seen the sessions. You’ve picked your faves. Now it’s time to plan out your BarCamp Nashville 2011 experience.

Make it your own
For your planning pleasure, we present you with the schedule, complete with sessions, their rooms and corresponding times. Check it out now to see when the sessions you’d like to attend are scheduled. From there, you’ll be able view or print a PDF schedule, map out your day by marking your preferred sessions, and be all ready to make the most of every knowledge-filled, trend-tapping, network-building, creatively inspired, BarCamp moment.

Pro tip: Sign up for sessions if you haven’t already, and click the “My Sessions” tab to see your customized schedule.

Plan with precision
There are 45 sessions in all, spread out over nine, 35-minute time slots. 30 are individual speakers. Five are panel discussions. And we’ll have at least 10 impromptu sessions to choose from, which may be individual speakers or panel discussions; keep an open eye or stay connected on Twitter, as these will be announced on the day of BarCamp. And no schedule would be complete without some time built in for a refueling lunch and after-party fun to follow.

Arrive fashionably early
Doors open at 8 a.m. on October 15th, an hour before the start of the first session. Volunteers will be in place to greet you with goodies, which may include some fashionable and free BarCamp swag (amounts are limited), and any additional information you may need. You'll also want to purchase a ticket for your Express Lunch in the morning so we can have those ready at noon.

Maximize your experience
As you go from session to session, familiarize yourself with the layout of all the session rooms. During sessions, enjoy the opportunities to engage … ask all kinds of questions during Q&A time, exchange business cards, and Tweet about sessions you enjoy with the #bcn11 hashtag (and the session specific hashtags found in your program) to exchange thoughts with other attendees. And don’t worry if you need to come into or leave a session somewhere in the middle. In the “unconference” spirit of BarCamp, you’re invited to make the experience yours.
