BarCamp JB

This 6th and 7th December, there will be a new revolution in Johor Bahru.

The communities of Bloggers, Geeks and Entrepreneurs in JB have come together. They will be having their very first BarCampJB

For those who are new, BarCamp is an unconference for sharing and learning that is organized all over the world by volunteers. It is an open platform where every one attends, volunteers to help out in the event one way or another. Participants either create sessions, help out in the organizing, spread the message of barcamp or be an active participant in the sessions. In short, this it a Web2.0 in a form of an event.

MSC Cyberport have stepped up as the venue sponsors to provide a cool location for the BarCampers to conduct their sessions.

There will be 3 tracks with sessions of 45 minutes ranging from the really technical to business to the very amusing.

Some of the tracks we have so far including ” We got Pre Seed” , “Building a global business from anywhere” , “Drupal for the not so bright” and many more.
