BarCamp Kuwait Four – Registration

Barcamp (22) is coming up on November 3th, 2012 from 3 PM till 10 PM at The Regency Hotel (Ibtisam Hall), assuming the zombies don’t eat us before that.

Last time we started at 1 PM but very few people came and 3 good presentations were missed, so we thought of shifting the time to 3 PM to give people enough time to fill up their bellies then join us. YOU HAVE NO MORE EXCUSES TO BE LATE NOW! (unless you were chased by a zombie…)

Register Now!

Registration is for both attendees & speakers,
so we can estimate the number of seats

Topic Focus

Technology & IT in general: Networking, SEO techniques, Programming, Web Design, Hardware, …etc.

Presentations must be about existing and implemented ideas, not concepts, as they give insight to hows & whats of the project rather than fantasizing about it.

Security Auditing (Hacking) and Proof of Concepts are welcome, but affected parties should be notified and invited to the event.

If this is a new exploit, net etiquette dictates that one should notify the affected party (company owning code) about the exploit 3 months prior to releasing the code to the public. The affected party must know about what the auditor is about to present, and the auditor must not share the PoC code with anyone apart from the affected party.

You are not allowed to sell a product or advertise it for the sake of selling it. You may NOT present an idea then ask the audience of geeks to help you implement it!

Presentations will be screened & checked by the organizers before the speaker presents to make sure everyone is in compliance with our rules. Sorry, but some have violated these last time, so this has to be done.

Presentation Timing

Presentations should be 10 minutes long then 5 minutes for questions and answers, so 15 minutes in total.

Bribes

What better way to lure you in than gifts?! Yup! We have gifts for the best speakers this time:

  • Xbox 360
  • A brand new, never opened, Nexus 7 tablet
  • A Japanese metal puzzle
  • Book: Guide to Pirate Parenting
  • Book: Z.E.O – A Zombie Guide to Business

Special Needs

If you have a special need to access the venue or require certain medical assistance to be available just in case (epilepsy, for example), please let us know so we take proper arrangements.
