Beginning with a nice Barcamp opening party last Friday at Möbelfabrik the Berlin webweek starts for me. BarCamp 3 Berlin on Saturday and Sunday at Hauptstadtrepräsentanz der Deutschen Telekom was really great. About 500 people attended BarCamp3 and they easily fit in the great location. The organization was quite perfect, might be to perfect for a BarCamp . And it was the BarCamp with the biggest twitter wall ever, as you can see in the picture (more on flickr):
On Tuesday, O’Reilly’s web2.0 EXPO Berlin started with the workshop sessions day. The location this year was much better than last year, but for all of you, who have ever been at Chaos Communication Congress at BCC between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, are knowing, that ways to use the facility could be different. My favorite session at the EXPO by the way, was “Scaling on the Cheap – Applying Lessons from Wikipedia” by Artur Bergman. Hope to see more about web performance and operations at BarCamps and at Web 2.0 Expo or even a Velocity Europe Conference !
Great to see, that the famous Web 2.0 Expo will be in Berlin again this year. Call for participation is now open and I’m currently thinking to participate. As the Web 2.0 Expo 2007 was a really important event last year in Berlin, I hope to see as much interesting sessions and keynotes in 2008 as last year.
About one month left until Web2.0EXPO in Berlin. There’s also an “unconference” element with the Web2Open as a part of the Web 2.0 Expo. You can meet me at the Sun Microsystems stand, where I’ll present some Pixelpark 2.0 and Web Hosting solutions.
Und schon vorbei, das Barcamp Berlin bei Pixelpark. Es lief alles gut, leider waren etwas weniger da als angemeldet, es wäre also noch Platz gewesen. Das WLAN funktionierte bis auf einen kleinen Aussetzer am Samstag auch sehr gut. Schöne Bilder gibt es natürlich auf flickr. Morgen werde ich mit Sebastian mal diskutieren, wie wir die aufgezeichneten Videos am besten für alle verfügbar machen, ohne dabei auf youtube Minimalauflösung gehen zu müssen.
Thanks to Foundry Networks, we’ll have some more 802.11a/b/g Ironpoint 200 Access points for the barcamp Berlin Wireless Network. We’ ll install them next week. Details for setting up secured WLAN Access with your laptop at the BarCamp Berlin will follow. Be sure, that your WLAN card in your Laptop support WPA encryption. Otherwise, you won’t be able to use the Barcamp Berlin WLAN.
Starting Friday, 29 Sep 2006 there’ll be a barcamp event in Berlin. Because it’s near to one of our Datacenter Facilities, I asked pixelsebi if he wants me to spend free internet access with 100Mbit/s for the barcamp event.
