BarCamp Cape Town 2010

What's The Big Idea?

Woot! BarCamp Cape Town is coming, again!

BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering 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.

Everyone is encouraged to present anything that they feel other geeks would find interesting. Have a look at the first BarCamp in Cape Town for the varied topics (and the funky logo):




Get involved

Seriously, you have to be involved, if we don't get support then its not going to happen.

Do one of these now!


Thinking early 2010, maybe towards the end of Jan?



BarCamp is a great place to get some visibility (and link love) by sponsoring all/part of the event.

Projector, White Boards, Screen: Huddlemind

Pitching in something: Attract I.T.



Space WILL be limited. Sorry guys, it needs to be small and intimate. Details will follow once we have a venue.



Would like it to be 2 days, but that's up for debate.





Participants (aka Campers)

  • Name, email address, url
