Announcing CodeCampMumbai on Nov 17th & 18th

[FlashBack-Cut-1] Little less than a month back Ankur and me had a couple of mail exchanges over how we should try and bring the hacker/developer community together.

[FlashBack-Cut-2] During the closing session of BarCampMumbai2 there were some participants who were not satisfied with the technical depth of the sessions at the BarCamp. I took this opportunity and quickly created a simple CodeCampMumbai page on the barcamp wiki and announced the event on the stage.

[Present-Cut-3] Thus, emerged CodeCampMumbai and a format which is heavily influenced by some popular philosophies.

Here is what we have taken from other popular manifestos/cultures:

CodeCamps:

  • By and For the Developer Community
  • No Fluff – only Code

Read more: CodeCamp Manifesto

Hackathons:

  • Race against time (24 hours)
  • Do something cool/complex/brainy

Read more here, here and here.

BarCamps:

  • Share and learn in a open environment
  • No Spectators. Only Participants.

Read more here.

In short:
CodeCampMumbai caters to the community of CodeCampers, bound by the culture of Hackathons and is based upon open participative and collaborative nature of BarCamps.
