Organized by Minnestar and first held in 2006, Minnebar is the largest and longest running tech (un)conference in the Western Hemisphere.

First held in 2006, Minnebar is an annual technology conference held in Minneapolis. Minnebar, like other BarCamps, is an (un)conference that is participant-led and has a very loose structure.

BarCamps are held around the world from Swaziland to Seattle; Minnebar is rumored to be the longest running and largest in world. There are no curated or formal workshops (although we sometimes host minor web celebrities), and all sessions are led by people from the tech and business community.
