My plans of going to chennai were shattered by my teammates who were moving out of planned trip and at the end when only 3 people were left, we decided to call it off.. !! but i wanted to be do something on the weekend and suddenly this site www.barcampbangalore.org flashes up and i find it pretty interesting concept and simple way to get into the camp was either by volunteering or taking a session.
10 AM- I reached the venue an hour late but luckily the camp also started half an hour late so i caught the intro session on what all things are planned for the day. The concept was pretty new so i went on to become a good listener and catch the idea as soon as possible and i was able to do that. Registered myself and went on to see the Time Table. Ok So the concept is very interesting,we have 4 rooms with projectors and audio systems and we have some 4 Dari's placed at different corners. The rooms were taken by the people who had demo's of their products , people who had power point presentations. Dari Sessions were more of more of discussion rather than presentations. Best part of camp was being a mix of Tech and Non-Tech discussions which balanced the hi-fi tech fundae with light-fun discussions. So i started my day by joining presentation by Ashish on Logo Designing. It was revision of all concepts i tried during my time at home. A pretty simple and straight guide to logo designing.Finishing it, i moved to Blogathon Discussion . Blogathon.in which is organising Blog Marathon across India on various Issues which affect Indian People and had nice time listening to people on various issues and getting inspiration to be part of it. Blogger doesnt works in Office so i can just write it when i get time and not be part of Competition which is running this week.I then went to see demonstartion of LifeBlob Social Networking Site which lets you live your life w.r.t time-line. The Concept is very interesting and in very early phases so will take some time to catch up the fever and spread. Currently this site is invite only and I am on it now.. :D After having lunch, we then had much anticipated session on Lesser Known Aspects of KamaSutra- The Art of Love Making. :D it was a dari session. I was done with my lunch and had nothing to do so sat with shashi way before session started.By the time session started, 15 people were there and by the time it ended, crowd of 50 was there waiting for the session to continue following day. Shashi took almost 90 minutes to explain various interesting facts which were mentioned in the book.Except the art of making love which he said was not his area of talk, he told all of us things to take care to Patao the opposite gender and man.. the way he caught the attention,all of us were laughing every minute on somethin or the other. He took lot of time to tell the 64 arts one should possess to attract.:D.. no furthur explanations.. :D Following it, we all went to discussion on Dating and we had one hour of talking about dating.Meri Kahani, Teri Kahani, Sab ki yehi kahani.. thatz wat was gist of all the discussion. then we all went to feedback session in audi and we all left with hope of better next day.
This was my first barcamp and i thoroughly enjoyed it and i look forward for many more to come.
For me Barcamp turned out to be the place where i could express myself ,learn about the latest technology trends, make myself aware of latest ventures in market and where i could present myself on any topic. :)
DID I MENTION I GOT TWITTERED. More on Twitter in coming days..lemme get hold of that site and use it properly.
Cheerz to all the planners and participants who made this event a success.
Current Status of Life: Cheerful, Happy and Smiling :)
