Barcamp Ghana 2010 rounded up the year #bcghana

Truthfully, Barcamp Ghana 2010 had some experimentation. Firstly, it was organized on a Saturday around Christmas time in Ghana - December 18, 2010. If you've been in Ghana then, you know what that means, it's wedding/engagement/saturday programmes season. It was organized on a Saturday - unlike 2008 and 2009, where the Barcamps were on Mondays - to attract the working professionals who could only participate fully on weekends. Also, Barcamp Ghana 2010 featured no panels or speakers. It was going to be about the attendees and them setting the agenda for the most part. Patrick Awuah, the Founder and President of Ashesi University, welcomed attendees to Barcamp Ghana and Ashesi University, the venue for the event. The event itself was organized by the awesome Barcamp Ghana folks including Edward Tagoe, Donald Diaba, George Abban, Kweku Anane-Appiah, Mac-Jordan Degadjor, Gameli Adzaho, Florence Toffa, amongst others. Here is the event recap.

Barcamp Takoradi 2010 made an impression #bctdi

I really wish to go to Takoradi soon to see how the place is changing with the oil find, etc. I have heard some things about the changes it is going through, and I'll blog about that later. But for now, I'll leave with the recap of the first ever Barcamp Takoradi. Spearheaded by the indefatigable Mac-Jordan Degadjor (follow him on Twitter @macjordan), we organized an event for Takoradi based folks to come discuss Takoradi issues and matters arising. Other team members were Esi Quayson, Kwamena Appiah-Kubi (@dotkwame), Teresa Lemaire (@reggesegge), with help from Jojoo Imbeah (@ijojoo) and Andrew Kafe. You can find pictures, and other info about barcamp takoradi at http://takoradi.barcampghana.org. Here is the recap of the event.
