The first Malaysian barcamp was concluded last month. I was invited to talk about my participation in SummerOfCode but was unable to make it. Judging from the feedback on the blogosphere, it was a spectacular event.
Volunteer Kamal Fariz told me that the success of the barcamp in the capital of Malaysia has spawned interest in other cities. An interesting review was written by MengWong. Also, presentation slides are posted here.
Kudos to the organisers. Hopefully, we’ll see more similar initiatives in the region.
