Barcamp Mauritius – First Edition
Sometimes, I miss the opportunity to talk about work with co-workers: “Hey you know xyz.com, its a cool favicon generator!”, “Oh really, I usually use abc.com, which is cool because of p, q, r, s”
Remaining only developer in solo and not having the opportunity to talk about the fun of development is a pain. Real talk about marketing, business strategies,latest technology and opportunities is a must. Wouldn’t be it nice to find a small group of likeminded people who share the same passions and who have the same needs?
Well, it just started and yesterday, I was at the first Barcamp Mauritius! It was a great opportunity to meet Pierre Bernard of Mauritius Network, Georges Lascie of e-scol@, Vincent Lecluse who was doing a presentation on WordPress and Jean-François Topige (Clarel’s bro!) of Vinivi.com.
I got the opportunity to learn new stuffs that are really fascinating, despite I missed 2 presentations. Seesmic.com, docuWiki, FlashMeeting, WordPress plugins, video pub (Orangina), twitter.com etc.
Well, it was a great start and Barcamp Mauritius has still more to go. A very nice initiative.
