BarCamp Kerala Season 10 – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Okay, I had promised to take a session on “How to make your first Dollar with a PC”, but due to a pretty much filled-up TODO, all I could do was to attend the camp. I could have pulled off the session if I had skipped sleep the previous night of the camp, but decided to skip the session instead. A sleep-less night would call for drooping at the camp, which would suck!

(Okay, that’s my explanation for not doing the session ๐Ÿ˜› )

This time, it was at SCMS B-School, Kalamassery. I got a lift in @KenneyJacob‘s car and reached venue really early, to be received by two security guards who said its holiday and Get the F out of there. Seriously.

Still we got in. People Came in. Sessions Started. About the Sessions read from Praseed’s Blog. #LazyMe

The Good

  • New Faces. Fresh crowd.
  • A Fresh atmosphere. Maybe since its been a while since the last camp.
  • Awesome sessions. Not even a single session was boring. And when the sessions got boring, a hot debate would somehow rise.
  • Delicious South-Indian Lunch!
  • Great Venue, nice A/C and High-Speed Wifi.
  • Lots of Sessions and great speakers.
  • Lots of Debates and Fun.
  • Lots of student participation.
  • Arun Basil Lal attended! ๐Ÿ˜€

The Bad

  • Lunch wasn’t free ๐Ÿ˜› (but me and @CyberGanga managed to rob the cashier ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Twitter and Facebook was blocked. Thanks to TweetDeck for making it possible.
  • No Tweet Wall. Missed the fun of Live Tweeting.
  • Missed out the Self-Introduction part. We had lots of fresh faces, so this would have been interesting.

The Ugly

  • Pretty much nothing.
  • Okay, there was not Banners or stuffs and the security guards weren’t informed.

So?

so, am gonna take a session next time. Be there!

p.s: It was a surprise to see @ManiKarthik there. Its been a long time since we met. And the best part, I got to talk to him in person just before lunch! Mani, if you happen to read this, it was a great honour that you took the time to meet me. I was out of breath!
