The BarCamp phenomenon hits Chennai

The Web2.0 wave in Chennai ?! Well by the looks of what Kiruba Shankar and other volunteers have pain stakingly organised , I should get geared for a fun filled ,and geeky two days at the first Chennai BarCamp on April 8 and 9th ,2006 .

A little history from the BarCamp wiki

BAR Camp was created as an open, welcoming, once-a-year event for geeks to camp out for a couple days with wifi and smash their brains together.The first BAR Camp was held in Palo Alto, CA, from 2005 August 19 to 2005 August 21. An estimated 200 participants attended and gave numerous presentations on a wide variety of high-tech topics including:
  • Wikis and other collaborative editing paradigms
  • Social impact of technologies
  • Voting methods
  • Technical and physical security
  • Version control, configuration, and package distribution
  • Synchronous telephony
  • Women in technology professions
  • High-tech business models
Attendees must give a demo, a session, or help with one. All presentions are scheduled the day they happen. Prepare in advance, but come early to get a slot on the wall. Presenters are responsible for making sure that notes/slides/audio/video of their presentations are published on the web for the benefit of all and those who can’t be present on 8th and 9th April 2006.

Even as i speak , BarCampChennai is gathering mass ! So be there if you have something web savvy to contribute or just sink into and basically as the motive goes :
"To learn, meet people who share different interests, contribute, and push yourself and your thinking "
Keep Clicking,
