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.
