After a long break, Barcamp Bangalore happened last year on November 5. We didn’t know what to expect – but over 150 campers attended Barcamp Bangalore, listening, taking part and discussing over 18 talks, not counting hallway and impromptu talks like making a 3-sided hexaflexagon. It was good to go back to the roots of Barcamp of the yore with a paper wiki to boot 🙂
2023 is here and we’re looking forward to hosting another edition of Barcamp Bangalore. A skeleton crew organized last year’s Barcamp Bangalore, and we’d like to improve upon that. We’re especially looking forward to new people joining in and helping in with the planning – as we’ve often seen, fresh blood often brings fresh new perspectives.
What are the expectations?
We understand you have limited time, so we’d like to make the expectations clear – planners and volunteers meet once a week, usually on Sundays. We organize the entire event, end to end starting from sponsorships and venue and including the websites and logistics (such as doing printouts of banners). Here’s some broad things planners and volunteers look at:
- Finding and getting sponsorships for the event
- Coming up with Design – including colour schemes
- For the website, mobile app
- Posters, stickers, social media images, etc
- Update and maintain the website
- Goodies such fridge magnets, etc.
- Logistics as visiting the venue, some side photography, arranging food, etc.
- Some unconventional ideas to keep things fresh
