Organised and hosted by the Mombasa Tech Community, Barcamp 2014 is set to be held in Mombasa on Saturday 29th March at the Pride Inn Hotel from 8am – 4pm.
BarCamp is an event packed with intellectual discussions on technology and other fun, random interesting topics. The informal event is open to all and has no agenda.
Attendees decide how the event is run, and vote on which topics and speakers get to present. Techies, bloggers, entrepreneurs are among the expected attendees.
The first BarCamps focused on early-stage web applications, and were related to open source technologies, social software, and open data formats. Last year’s BarCamp was held in Nairobi jointly at the iHub, NaiLab and mLab. Topics discussed include what would happen in the next 50 years in line with the country’s 50th anniversary independence celebrations.
Attendance is by online registration which can be done here
