#BarCampJB2015 (14th November 2015 @ 9am)

BarCamp is back in Johor Bahru! #BarCampJB2015 will be held on 14th November 2015, 9am – 6pm, in conjuction with Iskandar Learning Festival 2015 supported by Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA).

What is BarCamp?

BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense free-or-charges event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees.

It’s not your traditional talking heads technology conference. Everyone is expected to participate in some way: by giving a talk, asking questions, organising a session, or sharing something. There’s no restriction on the topics, attendees can talk about a wide range of topics such as science & technology, arts & music, current issues and others.

Similar to TED talks, but in a more casual manner. Participants arrive in the morning, find an available time slot, then reserve a room for giving talk, some participants might want to contact the organising team in advance for a specific time slot. As multiple talks are scheduled simultaneously throughout the day, attendees are free to walk from room to room, to attend talks of their interest.


What About BarCampJB?

BarCampJB has been around since 2008, and our last BarCampJB held in 2014 at Menara MSC Cyberport successfully attracted a crowd of about 150 people, comprising of entrepreneurs, designers, media professionals, IT progressionals, bloggers and etc.
