Mark your calendars, perfect storm is colliding in Shanghai next weekend (Oct 25-27). Okay, I don’t really mean it literally but with the sudden massive drop in temperature, it could happen right?
So, what I’m referring to are 2 very popular events we’ve been looking forward to are kicking off next Friday.
First is BarCamp. Folks are Techyizu are continuing the bi-annual tradition of organizing this popular unconference. This time, with the estimated attendance of 700 people, we can only hope the venue is big enough and sponsors have given enough to feed the crowd. This event is free and relevant to those who want to learn something new, meet old friends, and make new friends in the techie, entrepreneurial, and social innovation side of Shanghai.
