Yes, it’s free! And other answers about THATCamp Boise State

How much does it cost to attend THATCamp Boise State?
THATCamps are usually free or low-cost ‘unconferences’ that provide a space for those who are interested in the Humanities and technology to discuss, collaborate, work on problems, and learn. THATCamp Boise State is free–all the food & snacks, the conference rooms, drinks,  campus parking, etc. have all been taken care of thanks to the generous support of several Boise State University departments and colleges.

How is THATCamp different than a regular ‘conference’?
In a THATCamp everyone participates! The sessions/workshops are all created the day of the event, on the spot, and everyone is expected to participate. If you have an idea, want to teach or share something, then by all means suggest it. We’ll have a signup board where you can sign up to create/teach/show something; if enough people are interested in your idea then you are doing it! We don’t want people who want to sell something or drum up business for a company. We want people who want to share for the betterment of all.
