To be honest, I had a great time. And I think most attendees had. The weather was great, the ice cream was good, but the best of all: the mobile webcamp was inspiring, relaxed and fun. And that was exacty what I had hoped for. Thank you everybody!!
Presentations, blog posts, tweets and other pictures can be found via the mobile webcamp wiki.
I’m proud 🙂 For our mobile webcamp on the 26th of April, more than 120 attendees have subscribed. And really not the least when you check out the names. Even the organiser of the French mobile barcamp Phil Jeudy is joining us.
12 sponsors have accepted or even offered to help us out. Food, ice cream, a nice location,…Everything is taken care of. The city of Hasselt even allots a balloon flight. That’s what they told me on the telephone today. I’ve decided already now that organisers can participate, I’d love to fly the balloon 😉 You can find all the lastest news via the mobile webcamp site.
And even though we have a full house, you can still add your name on the webcamp site (password is ‘mobiel’, login is ‘devcamp’, then press ‘edit’ in the left corner above). When people unsubscribe, you’re in. That’s how things work 🙂 Moreover, there seems to be a nice combination of people involved in content, technical and marketing matters.
I only hope for a little bit more presentation proposals. Two things seem to scare people off a bit: fist of all, it’s the first Belgian MOBILE webcamp. Lots of attendees I contacted are interested in the topic but cannot easily give a presentation about it. That’s why we’re telling them since a few days that ‘plain’ internet matters are fine as well. Secondly, the majority of the attendees join a barcamp for the first time. They don’t know the concept and the rules. So they decide to watch and learn and then give a presentation the next time. But we need them now 🙂
All the information you need to know can be found on the wiki of the mobile webcamp. With the login ‘mobiel’ and the password ‘devcamp’ you can add your name, a presentation you want to give,…
And yes, I’m very proud to announce that I’m co-organizing the event. That’s why I’m now visiting the three high schools and the university in Hasselt, to make sure students join us there. Because, yes, they are the future ànd they have the opportunity of a lifetime to exchange ideas and plans with professionals (and vice versa) 🙂
And I never dared to hope that right now, after opening the site like two days ago, already 46 attendees have subscribed on the wiki. And quite some waw attendees, like Tom De Bruyne, Tijs Vrolix, Pascal Van Hecke and Bart Vanmaele. I’m a happy girl 🙂
By the way: also our location is waw, check it out!
