BarCamp Hong Kong 2010 – 18 September 2010

BarCamp Hong Kong is back, and it is gonna be held this coming Saturday at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. In case you all don’t know, BarCamp is an ad-hoc “unconference” 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 attendees. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.

BarCamp was born in Palo Alto, California in 2005. In just three years, it has become an international network of user generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by the attendees — often focusing on early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats.

Last year’s BarCamp Hong Kong topics included open source, cloud computing, iPhone development, social media, GIS, creative commons and more, drawing more than 300 participants from all walks of the Internet in Hong Kong: budding entrepreneurs, web designers, cutting edge programmers, mobile experts, game developers and designers, academics, bloggers, social media specialists, investors and media owners.

The organizers expect as many as 500 this year, so make sure you sign up and, more importantly, make sure you show up early!
