Thanks for coming to BarCamp Cape Town

Posted on: June 21, 2006

So BarCamp Cape Town has come and gone and I think it was one of my personal highlights in the recent years and a great honour to have been involved with.

For each and every one that attended and/or helped out in some way .. thank you.

I am humbled by the amount of incredible talent we have in this country and to have been associated with you all even if it is just for two days.

So whats next? I hope we can keep some of the momentum going and that we can get together on a more frequent basis, even if just for a chat over beer/coffee.

Planning a post BarCamp get together next week sometime, let me know if you are keen.

Yeah, a get-together sounds great; I’ll be there!

Congratulations again Conrad! you’ve blown open a door on the human interface & connected some exceptional people together. Looking 4wd to the next gathering.. will be there 4sho’

[…] Recently our Capetonian neighbours held BarCamp Cape Town, and by the sound of things it was a rip-roaring success (read Conrad’s succint round-up and linkage here). Inspired in part by their efforts and the ever-nearing reality of BarCamp Earth (being held at the end of this month), a few of us Jo’burgers have clubbed together to organise BarCamp JOZI ‘06! Rah rah! BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering (or “unconference“) 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. […]

[…] Earlier this year, Tectonic reported on preparations for the massively successful BarCamp Cape Town (see some pics; roundup). Now geeks in Johannesburg and Durban are following suit. […]

[…] To celebrate this utterly glorious summer playground our theme is: What’s HOT. So prepare to come and share hot tech tools, toys and tweaks that you’ve been using this year, or what you’re looking forward to next year (…and DAMN it’s gonna be a hot one for geeks next year!). Ever closer to my now infamous tag that “the geek shall inherit the earth” 😛 […]
