Summary – There are a growing number of BarCamps and TechCamps in Southeast Asia and the Mekong region. Regular meetings have helped us create a strong and growing tech community. But it’s not just all code and hardware. Why should you join & present at BarCamp? In this talk we look at some examples of the transformative power of tech meetings to motivate, inspire, get jobs, and make new friends – including tips from BarCamp ‘nomads’ Preetam Rai, Kounila Keo, Thomas Wanhoff, Satoko Oh and more. BarCamp could change your life… starting today.
