Guidelines to the Speakers

  • Order of presentations will be worked out at the event itself, using the whiteboard.
  • Sessions can be for maximum half an hour
  • Suggested session length will be 20 minutes+ 10 minutes Q&A
  • try to keep it short and punchy
  • DEFINITELY include a demo/examples if you have one - "A picture is worth a thousand words"
  • carry your presentation in powerpoint format on a CD or flash/jump drive; also upload it somewhere on the web or on this wiki (to be doubly sure)
  • after the event is over, we'd request you to upload the ppt on the wiki for benefit of those who can't make it to the event



Do I need to register somewhere? Do I need a pass?

No! Just put your name on the wiki here and show up on the day of the event!


Is there a fee?

Nope. Thanks to our Sponsors, you don't need to pay anything to attend the event. Rather all the campers will get a Blogcamp T-Shirt for free and did I mention that the lunch is also on us. So you just have to be there.


Do I have to have to have to have to give a session?

You are very strongly encourage to give a session. That said, you can also help in other ways - update the wiki in real time, Blog the whole event, shoot videos, make podcasts, take pics, help with organization, organize car pools, spread the word. But please don't just show up as a mere spectator! Be an active participant!


Do I need to get the topic of my talk/session approved?

No approval of any sort is required to present. Just add the topic of your session on the Wiki!


When (if?) will the schedule of sessions be made available?

We will put up a whiteboard on the morning of the event, where all the speakers can add their topics. Depending on the number of speakers we will spawn new threads. Thanks to IIT we have a lot of space at our disposal.


Any guidelines for speakers such as duration, QA format et al?

Guidelines are given in the sessions section above.


Hey I am a technical guy, will there be any technical discussion as well?

Did I say that you are in luck? You are!!! Blogcamp is taking place together with the Barcamp Mumbai and we will have a loads of tech guys, people interested in entrepreneurship, ideas, demos and a lot more. Do check the Barcamp Mumbai wiki for more details.
