BarCamp Kerala 11 at IIM-K – A Memoir

The 11th edition of BarCamp was announced with just 20 days of notice, unlike other editions. Hence the registered sessions and attendees was lower than the norm. And this time it was at Indian Institute of Management, Calicut. I don’t know why, but people find travelling to the north a bit more hectic than travelling to Trivandrum.

The day started as early as 4 in the morning for me with @theAnand, @BinnyVA and @jluSujith travelling in Anand’s car, cruising at speeds close to 90 kmph, thanks to the empty early morning roads. We had breakfast on the way and reached the campus at 9:30. As expected, @praseed3point14 was already at the venue.

Went to Amritapuri Again. This Time for a BarCamp!

It was my second Trip to Amrita, the first time was in March, last year with @TheAnand for my first presentation ever. This time it was for BarCamp Kerala 9.

I had made my travel plans with @Praseed3point14 so I went to stay at his home the previous night. We spent the technical evening discussing almost everything that we could find in common with ourselves. I know that’s a very very small sub-set, but I got a lot of stuffs, including his advice “Now its my time to Flirt with Ideas, so just do it”.

Memoirs of BarCamp Kerala 8 at MACFAST

So, last Sunday it was BarCamp time once again. This time it was at MACFAST College, Thiruvalla. And as I said before, I did a small demo of WordPress back-end.
