Where Africa and Technology Collide!

Barcamp Nairobi ’08 – Final Recap

Barcamp Nairobi ended up being quite an event, with 228 attendees and an overwhelming amount of good conversations. The list included bloggers, web and mobile developers, government officials and students. We had people from all over Kenya, as well as a couple who came in from Tanzania. It was truly eclectic and exactly what we were hoping it would be. Josiah Mugambi has the full run-down of topics covered in each room.

Can be found on Picasa, Flickr and Facebook (you’ll have to friend John Wesonga for the Facebook ones).

I’m working on uploading a couple videos from Barcamp Nairobi. There were some really good conversations started, not all of which I was able to get on video, or even be in the room for. Hopefully, we’ll get some blog posts and videos from others who were there as well.

I’ll continue uploading additional videos throughout the week on YouTube.

  1. nice round-up. i need to work on my round-up, but am so busy now

  2. A great conference indeed. I’ll have my pictures up on Flickr today. And yup, you missed me 🙂

  3. Nice round-up WhiteAfrican…

    My blog is in French so not really useful for Kenyan bloggers… I think a link to my PDF presentation (in English) would be much better – it will also reduce my bouncing rates (95% coming from the Wiki page) lol:)

    You can find the link in Wiki page or in one of my comment in your previous post.
