We are organizing the first ever Barcamp in this part of the world. BarCamp is an ad-hoc un-conference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees. Barcamps have become pretty popular lately and many have taken place in North America and Europe. But this one is going to be the first barcamp in whole of Asia! The theme for this BarCamp is “Next Generation Internet: Web 2.0, mobile computing, and other cool stuff”.

This is a great avenue for showcasing or demoing interesting work, presenting your views and of course hearing about what others are doing. If you would like to attend please add your name to the BarCamp wiki or contact me (gaurav at tekritisoftware dot com). More details here and here.
