Ever since its first event in 2008, there has been at least one Barcamp event in Saigon every year,nine years in a row. More importantly, with not one but two Barcamps in 2011, Barcamp 2016 marks a major milestone, the 10th event!
From a meetup of 200+ local techies, Barcamp Saigon has continued growing to meet the un-conference need of the community. Last year alone contribute more than a thousand participants and 65 talks covering not only our beloved technology topics but also stories of Vietnamese local coffee bean in world wide market, of a long-time Barcamp volunteer on his way across Vietnam, of how mediation touches many aspects of life without us realizing, and many more. Barcamp’s main purpose is to bring the community together.
Barcamp Saigon 2016 will be held on November 13th at RMIT University: 702 Nguyen Van Linh,Tan Phong, District 7, HCMC.
For those who are new to Barcamp, these videos are where we try to recap the meaning of “un-conference” and what does the event, over years, mean to us.

Barcamp every year wouldn’t be possible without the help of our sponsors, who believe in the value Barcamp present to the community and want to contribute to that.
