BarCamp Nairobi 2013 will be held on Saturday, 24th August, 2013 from 8am. The event will be co-hosted by the iHub, the Nailab, m:lab East Africa and SkunkWorks Kenya.
The theme for Barcamp Nairobi 2013 is ‘The Next 50’. We aim to get the conversation going on where tech in Kenya will be in the next 50 years. As Kenya celebrates 50 years of independence this year, we have the unique and enviable opportunity to dream and contemplate what the next 50 years should look like and what role technology will play. As thinkers, technologists in various sectors, and citizens of this country we can begin the process of visualizing the future and shaping it.
Challenges such as access to healthcare, quality and equitable education, food security have their answers in technology and the possibilities are endless. There will come a time in the next 50 years when these issues will be non-issues so to speak. What will that future look like? What technologies will be pervasive? How will people interact and how will lives be affected and improved?
Come to Barcamp Nairobi 2013. Let us begin the conversation.
