BarCamp Kerala

  1. 1. BarCamp Kerala
  2. 2. BarCamp • An informal unconference, people gather to listen to ad-hoc talks by speakers. • Even the organizing of the conference is not set in stone. Anybody can start a BarCamp. Wiki: barcamp.org/BarCampKerala • About 8-10 speakers per track, thirty to forty minutes per speaker, and lots of active discussion in between and afterwards.
  3. 3. History • BarCamp is a play on FooCamp (Friends Of O’Reilly) an annual conference held by Tim O’Reilly. • First BarCamp held in Palo Alto, California, organized in less than a week with 200 attendees. • BarCamps have been held in over 31 cities. • After the U.S., India has had the most number of BarCamps (Delhi, Bangalore, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad).
  4. 4. Appeal • The biggest rule of BarCamp is No Spectators, Only Participants. Everybody at a Barcamp contributes in some way. There’s an active, dynamic audience. • The largest gathering of geeks and tech enthusiasts is ensured. BarCamps appeal to the cutting-edge crowd. By sponsoring, you become a cool company. • People presenting often talk about interesting stuff they’ve discovered at work and outside. It’s a great way to discover what’s the in thing in IT right now.
  5. 5. Sponsor! • What we’re looking for: • Space - A good venue to conduct the camp. • WiFi - Good wireless internet is essential. • Money - For assorted expenses. • Participation - This is a must ;-)
  6. 6. Nov 24!
