Recently, I have been seeing many posts and tweets on BarCamp Kerala 6. So what is a ‘BarCamp’? I searched wikipedia and found the below defintion.

BarCamp is an international network of user generated conferences (or unconferences) – open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants.

I think a more simple definition is from the official site of Barcamp Kerala which is given below.

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.

BarCamp originally started as a free and open source off shoot of Tim O’Reilly’s FooCamp. The first BarCamp took place in 2005 at the office of SocialText. Since this time the methods and structure have been applied to various industries and locations across the world.

BarCamps are organized and evangelized largely through the web, harnessing what might be called a Web 2.0 communications toolkit. Anyone can initiate a BarCamp, using the BarCamp wiki.BarCamp originally started as a free and open source off shoot of Tim O’Reilly’s FooCamp.
