BarCamp is a gathering to share information between people. Topics discussed can be anything and are organized during the event. Usually the event revolves around technology and IT, though.
Speakers gather at the event, and select a time slot to present. They get 10 minutes to present, followed by 5 minutes for questions & answers.
First BarCamp Kuwait
The first event was held on October 10th, 2010 (10/10/10), and organized by AhamShay.
There were about 45 attendees throughout the event which was from 2 PM till 8 PM followed by dinner.
The event was about Technology & IT. The presentations varied between Networking, SEO, Clinical Informatics, Storage, Web projects and more.
Participants were people who have completed personal projects or learned certain technologies and came forward to share the projects and the knowledge. This is the spirit and motivation behind Barcamp.
There’s no fixed time to hold this event, so subscribe to this blog’s RSS to stay in touch of future events.
