A year ago I never heard of barcamps. My ideal conference meant sitting among spiderweb of power cables and writing strings of computer code with bunch of geeks. Things changed when I moved to Vietnam. In this part of world the best conferences are barcamps. So I started attended Barcamps in Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Cambodia and in Vietnam.
At these Barcamp friends would ask me, when we will have a barcamp in Hanoi. The last barcamp in Hanoi was organized in 2009. Things soon feel into place when I met Christoph Kruppa at Barcamp Saigon (Winter) 2011. He connected me to few people in Hanoi who also wanted to another barcamp in Hanoi.
And today I am happy to tell all friends, Barcamp Hanoi is here. Don't forget to come and attend it.
