Barcamp Nairobi 2010 Planning


After a hiatus for 2009, it looks like Barcamp Nairobi is going to happen again this year.

BarCamp Nairobi 2010

Get on over to the planning website and put in your opinion on what should happen, what you want to hear about and how it can be made into an electric event that rocks Nairobi!

“BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering 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.”

Topics thus far (you can add your own on the site):

  • Using my (GPS Enabled) cell phone to avoid traffic
  • Cloud Computing Applications in Kenya
  • Business Skills for Techies
  • Rural ICT
  • ICT initiatives for youth
  • Mobile Application Development
  • Web design, and why it’s not as good as it should be in Kenya
  • Hardware hacking
  • Tips and tricks for internet connectivity around Nairobi
  • Merging mobile and electronic commerce concepts
  • I want voluteers to map on Google the available free/paid wireless hotspots in Nairobi
