Another BarCamp Phnom Penh is nearly began on 3-4 October 2009

Last year (2008), I visited BarCamp Phnom Penh which was held at Cambodia-Japan for Cooperation Center (CJCC). There are more than 200 people registered to attend the day-long unreferenced; and about 300 people showed up physically at the event. BarCamp Phnom Penh attracted so many amazing BarCampers, including those from neighboring countries; and the presenters helped making the day so lively. I really interested in the event, and very excited of every new technology and open source feature during the presentation.

And now another BarCamp is nearly begin, the date is on 3-4 October 2009. Please hurry to register and enjoy the event together. You can meet me there ;-)

What is BarCamp Phnom Penh 2?
BarCamp Phnom Penh is an international, innovative, and open technology conference. It’s for individuals, businesses, and non-profits. This two-day gathering at Pa├▒├▒asastra University of Cambodia (PUC) is aimed at computer enthusiasts, Internet users, technologists, entrepreneurs, digital journalists, web developers and netizens to share and learn all things technology in a very open and democratic environment.

And what is this BarCamp all about?
As defined by Wikipedia, BarCamp is:
“…an international network of user generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants — often focusing on early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats.”
