UPDATE: November 22, 2008


Due to schedule conflicts we will not be able to bring this MobileCamp to New Delhi this time around, therefore we are canceling the event. Thank you so much for your efforts, feedback and support. Really, it as much appreciated! Our enthusiasm won't just die there - we hope to pass on the vibes to some who may be interested in running this Barcamp in the end. Email us and we would be happy to share our plans for hosting and running this event.


Best vibes,



Crystal Ginn + Radhika Rai

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is a MobileCamp?


BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering 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 participants. Check out the TheRulesOfBarCamp to learn what to expect.

MobileCamp is a mobile technology themed BarCamp. They aim to bring together mobile enthusiasts, explorers and professionals to share the current state and their visions for the future direction of mobility. A MobileCamp hopes to support the many voices helping to unlock the potential of a truly digital life. Topics may include - but are not limited to - mobile gaming, entrepreneurship, social mobility and presence, near field communication, physical hyperlinking, mobile storytelling, the importance of open standards, protocols, and platforms, linux based devices, and mobility on other continents.

In May 2007, the first such event, MobileCampNYC was held in New York City.
