Barcamp (20 + 22) is coming up on October 8th, 2016 from 3 PM till 10 PM at Mafazec (Al-Hamra Mall, 16th floor), unless we’re invaded by aliens before that.
The event will be from 3 PM till 10 PM. 3-3:30 & 8-10 are for networking (getting to know/meet people) + prayer break. We start presenting @ 3:30 till 8 pm.
Registration is for both attendees & speakers,
so we can estimate the number of seats
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.
Presentations should be 10 minutes long then 5 minutes for questions and answers, so 15 minutes in total.
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.
