Come on in! Registrations for Barcamp Bangalore 2022 are now open

After a long gap, we’re happy to announce that Barcamp Bangalore is now open for registrations.

What is Barcamp Bangalore?

bar BarCamp Bangalore is an unconference – an ad hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an opportunity for people to come together to learn, network, and discuss ideas in person. If you’ve always wanted a platform to share, discuss and talk to your peers, then Barcamp is just the platform for you.

When and where is it happening?

Barcamp Bangalore 2022 will be held on November 5, 2022 at RV University, Bangalore.

Do I have to pay anything?

Barcamp is a free event! Just walk in on the day of the event. If you’re like to talk about something, we recommend you put a session proposal so that you see how many are interested in your talk. If you’d like to bring some friends or family with you, that’s even better.

How do I register for the event?

If you plan to talk at the event, follow the steps below:

  • Visit the BarCamp Bangalore website and click on Sign Up (or Login if you already have an existing account) to register.
  • Head over to Add a Session page and enter details about what you will talk about.
    • If you intend to present a short demo about your app, product, project, Techlash might be a better option. Select the category as “Techlash” in this case.
  • Check out the other proposed sessions and click on “I’m interested button” on the sessions that you find interesting.
    • While we as organizers don’t select talks (they are purely on a first-come, first-serve basis), it helps in assigning a slot for the talk to prevent session clashes
  • That’s it! Subscribe to notifications or keep coming back at regular times to find out recent sessions that would have been posted.
