Last weekend on 24th and 25th October as it again, the Barcamp in Phnom Penh and I participated this year. The barcamp was as all the years before hosted at the Institute for Technology Cambodia (ITC) and there as a big crowd as I arrived waiting for registration. I found our booth really fast and Leap Sok had already prepared the rollup banner and he also brought the swag which he stored after the Software Freedom Day. I thought we will have enough swag as I brought something from Europe and Harish send also what he had left to Cambodia. But all the swag was gone after 3 hours, it as really hard work handing DVD out and answer all the questions. What is it?, is it really for free?, can I take one? And opposite to Europe and North America, I had a lot of requests for a 32bit version. Besides all the questions I had to answer I gave interviews and met new and old friends. On Sunday I gave the opening talk in the FOSS panel, which was the first time that Barcamp had it. So all in all an sucessul event which ended with a very nice party.
Next year, there should be FUDCon at this event, so some more people from Fedora will be there, helping Fedoras community in Cambodia growing. But its still a year time for that and a lot of other activities will be before it. Next one next weekend, Translation Sprint.
