Barcamp Saigon

Why should i join the Barcamp?

Barcamp to me is kind of social activity, where i can meet new people. I would like to meet and share my thought, and my experiences with others. Moreover, to be more understand other culture espcailly my neiborhood country.

I have discovered one theory that "I do not believe in something easily" so before I believe in history or in old theoryof old generation i have to come and see things by my own. Cambodia and Vietname has been in bad and good relationship since it was discovered. People in the past have done a lot bad and little good things so the new generation has a duty to make our relation of neiborhood country better,or to make a better world together. Obama is a black skin, and now he's a president of USA, and i remember of his power speech that "Nothing impossible in America" so Cambodia, Vietname, Thailan, Iraq, and other Country will make new history of no more dicrimination .

What is Barcamp?
Barcamp: To my understanding and my previous experiences joining Barcamp Phnom Penh,
and Barcamp Saigon, barcamp is a place where all background of people meet, talk, and
discussion their own thought, experiences…mostly they are so called GEEK. Every audience can make their speech or presentation of anything they are interested not only about technology but also about international globalization. Ex, I myself I presented about “Sexy Cambodian Blogger”

I would like to thanks Preetam so much for being such a creating minded that could think of a very attractive topic. ^^ {please take a look below of my draft speech}


BarCamp is an international network of user generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants — often focusing on early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats. By Wikipedia!

BarCamp Phnom Penh is open for computer enthusiasts, technologists,IT professionals, geeks, and nerds to talk and discuss all things technology. As the event is open for the public, and hopes to inspire IT community in Cambodia. In this event, it will be available for all of you to access free wifi internet. So, you should bring your own laptop by yourself. By Vutha,!

BarCamp Saigon: Perhaps BarCamp needs a little explaining. It’s a technology educational event that does not fit any traditional molds. But it’s more than an educational event, it’s a way for people with similar interests and passions to meet and share knowledge and experiences with technology{...}
