BarCampDelhi: what is it?

 

BarCampDelhi is BarCamp's first foray into Asia and we are proud to be the torch-bearers.

 

BarCamp is a new kind of technology 'unconference'- organized by attendees, for attendees. It's an open, welcoming, once-a-year event for geeks to hang out with wifi and smash their brains together. It's about love and geekery and having a focal point for great ideas.

 

Attendees are strongly encouraged to give a demo, a session, or help with one. You can help by taking notes on the wiki, blogging the event, helping to promote the event, or helping with logistics.

 

The theme of BarCampDelhi will be "Next Generation Internet: Web 2.0, mobile computing, and other cool stuff".

 

This wiki is a living document. Feel free to edit it! tutorial on wiki editing here

 

It was a success!
