Barcamp Kerala 8

In Business, Technology on April 1, 2010 at 12:29 pm

An year back , I came to know that there is an event called Barcamp that is happening in my neighborhood. Which is an unconventional way of gathering of like minded people, mostly passion driven, in order to maximize networking,sharing and learning diverse ideas. It is a user generated ‘un-conference’.

And on 28 th March 2010, the latest BarCampKerala was happened in MACFEST, Thiruvalla. You can check the BarCampKerala web site for details.

Though as many as 17 sessions were registered, few didn’t turn up, may be due to genuine reasons.

To brief a few sessions that I found useful were

Mr. Deepak from IBM research presented a fine session on Statistical Machine Learning in a simple way. (twitter: @deepakp7)

A presentation on Artificial Intelligence backed power saving technology christened SPARA from Artin Dynamics.

A presetation on ‘Startups in Kerala’ by a law consultant, Ivan (twitter:@ivan457).
