BarCamp 2008 Photos

Due to a recent talk to drum up interest in Barcamp Phnom Penh 2015, I’ve dredged up some old photos:

Looking back to Cambodia’s very first BarCamp (Sept 2008), following on the heels of our 2007 Blogger summit.


BarCamp Phnom Penh

As with the prior meeting, we were amazed regarding the enthusiasm, as many people came from near and far.   Microsoft Presentation - BarCamp Phnom Penh  


Opening talk in Khmerlish by sponsor Microsoft. They also handed out shirts with their logo which one of our participants quietly noted were a knockoff of a global brand (Izod, I think?)

BarCamp Phnom Penh

‘The Usual Suspects’. I can spot Tharum, Chantra; who else?

At the very end, a quiet attendee raised his hand and praised the gathering. He was from one of Cambodia’s Ministries, I believe it was the Ministry of Interior. It was not clear if he was attending in a private or public capacity. But that’s Cambodia for you. ;)
