Barcamp Nairobi 2010 is here, June 12 & 13th at iHub

Its confirmed! BarCamp 2010 is back! and this time round, it  will be a 2 day event on the 12th and 13th of June. The camp will also combine WhereCampAfrica.

The first ever BarCamp held in Nairobi was in 2008 at the Jacaranda Hotel in the Westlands area, the event brought together many tech lovers(Software developers, hackers, Website designers, bloggers etc) from the private, public and freelance sectors.

I wrote about and attended the 1 day event where I got to meet the likes of Kahenya, Hash, Josiah, Phares, Njihia, ory and many other bloggers/techs.

It was great to see lots of locally made applications, ongoing projects and to finally meet bloggers who previously only existed virtually.

The Camp this year will be held at the newly unveiled hub for Nairobi Tech community, the iHub located on Ngong Road.

Registration is currently ongoing with a target of 500 attendees. If you haven’t yet, you need to register soonest possible as I can assure you, the applicants will be more than 500.

Some of the potential topics so far are:-

•Using my (GPS Enabled) cell phone to avoid traffic
•Cloud Computing Applications in Kenya
•Business Skills for Techies
•Google Earth and Fusion Tables
•Food Security and Mapping
•Rural ICT
•ICT initiatives for youth
•Mobile Application Development
•Using Google Fusion Tables
•Web design, and why it’s not as good as it should be in Kenya
