Barcamp post-mortem

I’m actually far too tired to write a proper post-mortem, but Saturday’s Barcamp was a big success. We had a big group — we don’t have firm numbers, so let’s say something like 150 people — at the Weiden and Kennedy shop here in Shanghai. There were some wonderful talks, delicious pizza from NY Style Pizza, and a great afterparty thanks to W+K.

AND we came in underbudget, so we will have enough to make the next techyizu event (which will be some sort of Demo/Pitch conference) better than this one!

I’m still catching up on sleep, but thanks to all the Sponsors, the Techyizu team, all the presenters, attendees, and well-wishers.

I’ll post something in a few days collecting any talks and photos that attendees put up online.

Barcamp Shanghai 2011!

Well gee, we’ve done it again: Barcamp Shanghai 2011 is tomorrow, at Weiden and Kennedy Shanghai. Doors at 9am, planning at 930, talks start at 10. It’s gonna be epic. After party for geeks and geek admirers on the superfly WK Shanghai rooftop, starting at 5.

I’ll probably recover enough to write a post mortem on Monday or Tuesday. Thanks to the techyizu team for helping bring BarcampSH to the next level.

BarCamp Shanghai: Attention Techies, Entrepreneurs, and Social Innovators, Don't Miss This Event!

BarCamp is a fun, user-generated "un-conference." The BarCamp model started in the Silicon Valley as a response to formal, exclusive, and boring tech conferences and has since spread to 350+ cities worldwide. It's a can't miss event for techies, entrepreneurs, and social innovators.

The Shanghai event is set for Saturday, March 12, 2011 at the Wieden + Kennedy Offices. Sign up on the TechYizu site by creating an account.

BarCamp consists of passionate 5-minute presentations on an impromptu topic. At past BarCamps, participants have presented on Chinese Netizen Speak, HTML5s missing tag: sarcasm, Hot Social Games in China, and the best strategies for retaining Chinese vocabulary. Upon arrival, anyone (yes, anyone!) can sign up to present on anything, just let your own energy and nerdiness shine through. All presentations are followed by time for discussion–the objective is to get everybody involved!

This year Shanghai BarCamp is being led by Tech Yizu (Chinese for "Tech Ants"), a new organization that aims to organize Shanghai's lively startup and tech community.

We need Volunteers and Projectors! email barcamp@techyizu.org if you can help!
