What is a Barcamp?
Barcamp is not a lecture, not a presentation, not a seminar.
Barcamp is a conversation. The whole idea is to get smart people that love technology together to start talking and see where the conversation goes.
We don’t even have a firm agenda!
How did Barcamp Bangkok started?
Barcamp Bangkok started back in 2006/2007 when local geeks grouped up to drink beer with @noneck.
From there, several geeks set out to organize the event, there have been 4 Barcamp Bangkoks so far:
◦ Barcamp Bangkok 1 – January 26th, 2008 at Indus Restaurant
◦ Barcamp Bangkok 2 – August 30th-31st, 2008 at Chulalongkorn University
◦ Barcamp Bangkok 3 – May 23rd-24th, 2009 at Sripathum University
◦ Barcamp Bangkok 4 – October 23rd-24th, 2010 at Sripathum University
IN 2014 the Barcamp will take place at TK Park at Central World on August 23rd.
Are you the only camp?
Of course not! There are Barcamp communities throughout Thailand: Barcamp Chiangmai, Barcamp Bangkhen, Barcamp Songkhla, Barcamp Khonkaen and many other camps in the same spirit such as Mashcamp, Drupalcamp, Readcamp!
