Barcamp Brussels

On May 20, Peter Forret is hosting the first Belgian Barcamp: Barcamp Brussels. A Barcamp is an ad-hoc un-conference driven by its attendees.

Being relatively new to photography and photoblogging, I'd like to meet other photographers at Barcamp to share how they (want to) manage their photos on their websites.
