BarCamp is an international network of conferences primarily focused around technology and the web. It's a lot like FooCamp but more open to the public. Foo Camp is an annual unconference hosted by O'Reilly Media. An unconference is an informal, more ad-hoc version of a conference. A conference is an event with talks and stuff. An event is a thing that happens.
