Na its not a place to get drunk in groups. BarCamp is an ad-hoc un-conference 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. Well such a barcamp is going to take place in Chennai, yup you heard it right, our own chennai.The BarCampChennai focusses on Web 2.0 and Next Generation Internet. For more information regarding what a Barcamp is check out his wiki. Here there are no audience. Only participants! This is unlike any conference you have been to before. It's new, it's different and it's going to happen in our city. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join. When you come, be prepared to share with barcampers. When you leave, be prepared to share it with the world.
