Put on your thinking caps, don your listening ears and step up! The Mumbai BarCamp is around the corner! The weekend after next (that’s 29th March) at SOM, IIT – Bombay a group of people will congregate for an ‘unconference’
Now I’ve never attended a BarCamp before. But I’ve been hearing the whispers in the wind and here I quote:
Anyone can attend! Anyone can speak!
About what? Anything…err, so long as it concerns blogging, technology etc.
And if the speaker bores you, you can always move to another one…there’s plenty happening at the same time!!
Sounds like fun, wot? Meet me there!
Here are the details….
BarCamp Mumbai 2 was a big hit with over 200 attendees and a day full of discussions on many interesting topics and ideas. BarCamp Mumbai 3 is now on the cards for 29th March at School of Management at IIT Mumbai. In the true spirit of BarCamp it’s an open platform which anyone can make her own. Anyone can participate, anyone can speak, agenda is drawn collectively at the start and any topic is welcome as long as you have others interested as well.
This time the infrastructure has been extended in view of the overwhelming participation last time. The venue can accommodate around 400 people. In addition, the open spaces within the building will have mattresses which can be used by groups of people to discuss or to just take a break.
This edition will also host a BlogCamp which will have people talk about all things blog and also other aspects of social media and marketing. There is also FireTalk where you can talk about your idea and exhort like minded people to join you – it can be a cool app or a full scale business plan. The people gathered thus prepare a broader blueprint offline and then present it to larger audience later in the day.
Come and make this your own BarCamp. Over a 100 people have already registered.
