[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:
- By and For the Developer Community
- No Fluff – only Code

- Race against time (24 hours)
- Do something cool/complex/brainy
- Share and learn in a open environment
- No Spectators. Only Participants.

CodeCampMumbai caters to the community of CodeCampers, bound by the culture of Hackathons and is based upon open participative and collaborative nature of BarCamps.
If you love to code and code for the love of it you ought to be present. See you there
