BarCamp Time for Kerala

One of my resolutions for the New Year was to connect with more techies and webbies offline and hence have a pool of contacts I can always count on to have a drink or a watch a movie together or maybe simply ask about their adsense earnings for the week ;). Orkut was my first stop to find some people offline at my place Cochin. I found a few really interesting people and got in touch with them. It was really great to meet up with them, a bunch of techies who are warm and made me regret I had not taken this decision earlier :). No dollars ever earned gave me the feeling of happiness when people recognize your site and appreciate it. You need to feel it to actually understand what I am trying to say.

I found that Kenny, is in the process of organizing a second BarCamp in Cochin for Kerala after successfully completing the first one in Trivandrum. Whats a BarCamp? The concept of BarCamps are not really known to many including me. Hell, I first heard about the word from Kenny! From what I found online a BarCamp is

BarCamp is an international network of unconferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participant….

So, a 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. Basicaly a place for people to get together and have some fun. The idea was fun and I am definitely going there to meetup with a lot of new and interesting people. One person I am definitely looking forward to meet from the list of attendees is Mani Kartick. I remember enjoying his articles on BloggingTips, too bad I did not know we were from the same place!

So, if you are a Web Enthusiast or a self-proclaimed and proud Computer Geek from Cochin or nearby, make sure you drop by the meetup. I am sure its going to be fun from what I read about it. Add your name to the BarCamp Kerala Wiki and feel free to share your thoughts by taking up a session.

Will keep you guys(and girls ?) updated as things shape up. Tomorrow I am leaving to Mookambika Temple for some 3 days, but I have some cool posts coming up including one about Shoemoney visiting the Cochin BarCamp. Stay Tuned and subscribe to my RSS feed if you haven’t yet 😉
