BarCamp Bangalore

BarCamp Bangalore

Bangalore BarCamp was organised at Yahoo! Bangalore, a super whole-day Unconference with 150+ participation. For the uninitiated BarCamp was initiated by Ross Mayfield, Chris Messina and company in response to criticism of FooCamp which was started by Tim O’Reilly.

Chris Messina who *works* on Flock and Tara Hunt of Riya talking on Microformats, explained it beautifully, it’s use for hCard and hCalender is simply awesome.

The Social Engineering was at it’s utmost level ;), with wifi-for-free everybody was already blogging there. It was full of LJ’ers, BLUG’ers and Yahoo!’s.


And ofcourse it couldn’t be completed without hang out at Geoffrey’s.

  4. Right… Thanks for the info Jessica and Chris, I couldn’t find all the names anywhere else.
