Free networking for Zim techies
COMPUTINGBy BiztechAfrica - July 25, 2011, 11:30 a.m.
Tech followers and entrepreneurs can enjoy a day of free networking and knowledge sharing in Harare next week.
BarCamp Zimbabwe, to be staged on 3 August at the Keg & Maiden at Harare Sports Club, is a networking and knowledge sharing event to bring tech followers and tech entrepreneurs together for a day of discussion, demos and dialogue about ICT issues in Zimbabwe and beyond.
It will consist of user-generated sessions and discussions. The theme is “Technology and Entrepreneurship: We Are Stronger Together”. It places emphasis on the need for converged thinking as individual start-ups, developers and others can best achieve their respective goals through the power of collaboration.
A Barcamp is an "unconference" meaning that it's organised by an open community of interested individuals. As opposed to normal conferences, it is not organized and administered by an organization or a company. The conclusive aim of a BarCamp is to get likeminded people interacting and mapping a way forward. Zimbabwe’s BarCamp is historic as it is the first startup focused event to happen in the nation.
