Saifi, one of Barcamp regulars had a few questions about infrastructure available at CMRIT, our venue for the upcoming Spring 2015 event and we thought it’d be a good idea to cross post these questions on the blog as well.
What is the total number of halls/rooms where the sessions will be held ?
We will have 6 rooms for the regular sessions. An auditorium will be used for Intro, Techlash and feedback sessions. There’ll be open spaces for impromptu sessions so that anyone can gather a few people and start talking.
Do the speakers need to come in early for the selection process ?
While there is no session selection process, we have only 36 slots for sessions(excluding Techlash/impromptu sessions) and the speakers get to talk on a first-come, first-serve basis upon arrival at the venue. Refer to our previous post on how we schedule sessions.
Does each of the hall/room have a LCD projector ?
Yes, we are arranging for projectors in each room
Is it safe to assume that Whiteboard will be available ?
We will have couple of whiteboards available near the entrance(for some idea post-its etc), but not in each room. The rooms however are classrooms, and each will have blackboard with chalk/duster.
Is internet access available in the halls/rooms where the sessions would be held?
Yes, we are arranging for WiFi access in the area Barcamp sessions will be ongoing
