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.

Ross provided the space for the initial Barcamp — the original planners (including myself, Andy Smith, Tantek Çelik, Matt Mullenweg and Ryan King) met at Ritual Roasters to kick it all off.
