Hello everyone!

BarCamp Kuwait Two – Preparations


We’re looking for people interested in presenting at BarCamp Kuwait. We need at least 5 main presenters to proceed with reserving the venue & other arrangements.

Presentations must stick to the topics defined below. Marketing and advertising your own product is not allowed, but you’re free to share technical information about your product(s), like the difficulties you’ve encountered in making it, scaling your application in case of web applications, evolution of the user interface and how users responded to it, …etc.

Register Now!

* You can register as an attendee only or as a presenter.


UPDATE: We’re planning to hold it on Saturday, April 2nd.

Topic Focus

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

We prefer to have existing and implemented ideas presented, 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.

Helping fix the world, even bits of it, is a noble deed that everyone acknowledges.

Presentation Timing

Presentations should be 15 minutes long maximum then 5 minutes for questions and answers, so 20 minutes in total.

If your topic is really interesting and requires more time, we can stretch it to 20 minutes and 5 minutes for Q and A.

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.
