As a start of Pre-Camp initiative a group of bloggers, IT/Media specialists will organize the first Pre-camp on October 13. As you remember, according to the initial plans, the Barcamp Yerevan should be organized on October 10-12, however, although we have lot’s of promises from donors/sponsors, we have not received any real cash yet, so the initiators of Barcamp decided to postpone the main event and start with a series of volunteer driven pre-camps: to promote the idea of Barcamp, collect potential participants and in the meanwhile, to help the initiators of the Barcamp build their capacity of working together.
Heareby, the initiative group of Barcamp Yerevan are invited all those bloggers, IT/Media specialists who are interested in making this great event a reality, to take part in the first Pre-Camp. The Pre-Camp will take place on September 13, in the Armenian-Russian (Slavic) University of Armenia. Around 50 students are expected to attend the event.
