As Paras Chopra informed me, the BarCamp Delhi conference is coming up in October. BarCamp is an international network of user generated conferences, often focusing on early-stage web apps, and related open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats.
BarCamp Delhi – 11th and 12th October 2008 at IIT-Delhi
“Ideologies separate us. Dreams and anguish bring us together”, said Eugene Ionesco. Only if he were alive today, he would definitely have been one of the speakers at the upcoming BarCampDelhi, where dreamers and entrepreneurs from all across India will come together this October to celebrate human ingenuity. To accommodate people like Eugene, we are redefining the agenda of BarCampDelhi completely. We adore discussions on technology and we love hackers but we would like to open this even up to a wider range of thinkers outside of just technology. We would like to include topics which are intellectually stimulating, irrespective of whether they are tech oriented or not.
As we’re looking for great thinkers in many domains outside of tech, we are asking for your help in reaching out to people in areas such as law, culture, health and wellness, art, finance and any other topic that would help spread the spirit of knowledge sharing that BarCamps are all about.
