What is BarCamp?  

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, usually centered around design & technology topics. About BarCamp Although BarCamp started in Palo Alto, California, in 2005, the event has spread like wildfire across six continents and dozens of BarCamp events are held each year.

Visit our website that focuses on the BarCamp that is held in Kuwait at http://barcampkw.wordpress.com and follow us on Twitter @barcampKW.

The specific sessions will be determined during BarCamp, all based on who wants to give talks and what topics are of interest. “The Grid” is the unconference way of organising the schedule.

The following are the key speakers who submitted their topics early:

  • "Cloud Computing" by Bashar Abdullah
  • "Cookies Vending Machine" by Dherar Z. Al-Rashoud
  • "Kuwait Paper Dump Mobile" by Salem Marafi
  • "Scaling Web Applications" by Ahmad Al-Ibrahim
  • "Kuwait WarDriving" by Majed B.
