BarCamp Hong Kong 2010 on September 18th
Posted by Elmer in Geek on September 01, 2010

It's the first of September. In some regions of the Earth, autumn season ushers in leaves start to fall. Changes in foliage color provide significant change in surroundings as school season begins. 

Here in Hong Kong, September also means the annual BarCamp Hong Kong is happening. For the uninformed, BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering of people from different walks of life, aiming to share and learn various subjects where intense discussion and interaction is a norm. BarCamp's "unconference" format defies conventional template for formal speaking engagements and allows speakers to freely share their adopted expertise at their most comfortable approach.

Now on its fourth year in the city, BarCamp Hong Kong takes place on the 18th of September at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, at the heart of Kowloon.
