Even lunch during BarCamp Jozi was informal

BarCamp Jozi wrapped up last weekend. I finally got myself some free time and decent wifi, even though I am nestled in the basement of a Mugg & Bean Cafe in Johannesburg’s Rosebank district. Which means I’ve been able to upload some images from the unconference. In the spirit of BarCamp, feel free to grab some images if you were there or if you are simply interested. The gallery is unlocked, so it should be fairly easy to download the images you need. The images will upload in batches, so the complete gallery won’t be finished until this weekend, so keep checking back.


A good portion of the attendees were live-blogging the event. Unfortunately, my coverage was limited as I was probably the non-techie in the room, . Most of the presentations were quite interesting to listen to, and held promise for the future burgeoning tech sector in Africa. More interesting though, was the Q&A sessions after the presentations. There robust and engaging, often leading and presenting tangentially problematic situations for the presenter. The only problem was that I had a really hard time trying to understand the subject matter, engage, and blog at the same time. So, instead I am just going to point you in the direction of good coverage from some of the event attendees:
