BarCamp was born in Palo Alto, California in 2005. In just three years, it has become an international network of user generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by the attendees — often focusing on early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats.

Last year's event drew in 100 participants from all walks of the Internet in Hong Kong; budding entrepreneurs, web designers, cutting edge programmers, mobile experts, game developers & designers, academics, bloggers, social media specialists, investors and media owners.

This year we are expecting over 200 people at the full-day event, hosted at Oxford House in Taikoo Place, on the conference floor of Turner International Asia Pacific, owner of Cartoon Networks and CNN News.

There will be five large conference rooms, two lounge areas, a coffee room and a bar. Presentations can be on any topic you like as long as it is about the Internet and people are wiling to listen. You are free to speak in Cantonese, Putonghua or English.

Food, drinks and free wifi will be provided.

Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.

Come, speak and learn at BarCamp Hong Kong!
