What is a BarCamp?

A 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 participants.


Here is a quote from the wikipedia description:

"BarCamp is an international network of unconferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants — focusing on early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies and social protocols."


BarCampDakar 2008 will be held in Dakar on 18/10/2008 as a way to promote IT culture and social business in Senegal and sub-Saharan Africa, on a variety of levels and topics, bringing interested parties together in one place for a day of exploration, connection and enjoyment.



Who? Anyone who is interested in technology, mobility, art, social business, sustainability, micro-finance, culture, design

What? A good opportunity to share ideas, start conversations and build connections with African peoples and organizations making a positive impact with other parts of the world
