BarCamp Hong Kong 2013_20130129_162849

BarCamp, Hong Kong’s un-conference on technology, digital marketing, startups  and anything else interesting is back again Feb 23-24 at the PolyU.

Born in Palo Alto, California in 2005, BarCamp quickly grew into an international network of user-generated conferences, often focusing on early-stage web applications and related open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats.

You might have heard BarCamp referred to as an unconference. That’s because there’s no speaker list or fixed schedule until the actual event. All content comes from attendees. Anyone can host a session, participate in discussions, demo a project, talk about code, share cautionary tales, and pretty much do anything techy or geeky.

BarCamp Hong Kong has been active since 2007, starting out with only 100 attendees and 30 sessions. Our last few BarCamps have each attracted 400-500 participants, comprising entrepreneurs, designers, developers, media professionals, bloggers, investors and many more. Topics have included open source, user experience, coworking, mobile development, big data, programming jokes (really), and just about any hot topic of the moment. What would you like to talk about this time?
