What's it all about?

BlogCampPune is a FREE unconference focusing exclusively on blogging, organized by bloggers for bloggers. It‘s built upon the principles of the famous BarCamp (ad-hoc unconference) focussed on sharing, learning and new ideas. This is going to be an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction between attendees. Any blogger who wants to contribute is welcome and invited to join. In the spirit of BarCamp, if you attend, be prepared to present something (even if it's just 10 minutes).

For campers coming from Pune

You can take The Symbisis Busses from Atur Center (Model Colony, near Om Super Market) to Hinjewadi. You will have to pay some nominal fair to use this bus service. Buses will be available at following timings:

8 am
8:40 am
9:15 am

These buses come via Aundh, so if you are coming from there, you can also board these buses at the Tennis Court Crossing (where people board Volvos)


Public Transport

I am aware of following routes, if you know more please add the details below:

1. Nigdi to Hinjewadi via Dange Chowk & Pimpri Road to Hinjewadi

2. Kothrud Bus Stand via Aundh Parihar Chowk to Hinjewadi

3. Maldhakka(Pune Station)to Hinjewadi

4. Corporation to Hinjewadi (Route No. 100)


For Campers coming from Mumbai

There are Volvos almost all the time from everywhere in Mumbai to Pune. Hinjewadi is jsut 4-5kms from the Expressway, you will have to get down just after Wakad at the Hinjewadi flyover. From there you can take a ric or hitch hike.


Where to Stay

Coming a day early?? Coming from outside Pune??

You can stay at The Tammana Hotel or The Lemon Tree Hotel at Hinjewadi, they are just 300mts away from SCIT.


Share Accomodation

People would like to contribute some space for the out-station participants can go ahead and file their names with contact numbers.

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 Pune 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 SCIT 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.


I won't be able to come to SCIT, but really I want to attend. I am so sad, wish I could be there!

Hey don't be sad, it's Blogcamp Pune, if you can't make it to the venue, you can still participate and also keep a tab on the event. To participate virtually please read the Virtual Participation session above. To know what's going on in the event, keep checking our wiki, we will keep updating it and we will keep uploading pics and videos as well.
