After a hiatus for 2009, it looks like Barcamp Nairobi
is going to happen again this year.
Get on over to the planning website and put in your opinion on what should happen, what you want to hear about and how it can be made into an electric event that rocks Nairobi!
"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 attendees."
