BarCamp & WhereCamp Underway in Nairobi

This event kicked of today at the IHub in Nairobi.

BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering of people interested in technology born from their desire to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees. With practically a full house, the attendants were able to live out this vision today and will continue throughout Sunday.

The event had a who's who list of local and international sponsors including Google, K24, Mocality, SevenSeas Technologies, SpatialDev and Development.Seed among others.

Kudos to the team behind the planning, organisation and execution of BarCamp - it is making a huge difference in the way the Kenyan technical community interact.
