Other Announcements

New Domain

Sometime during last year, due to some unfortunate circumstances, we lost control of our original domain, Barcamp Bangalore <dot> org and is controlled by a spammer. Attempts to buy back from the spammer were in vain and we decided to move to our new domain – BarcampBangalore.com. Over the past few weeks, we’ve managed to regain the position we lost in search engines for “Barcamp Bangalore”. We would request you to update your bookmarks/links to the new domain and help us spread the word about the change in domain by sharing this in your social platforms/blogs/emails.

Moving away from Yahoo Mailing List

We’ve been using Yahoo Groups as a mailing list since time immemorial, but today’s communities have moved on to more modern solutions like Meetup. Hearing the feedback from our community we have decided to move on to Meetup platform and deprecate the Yahoo Group. We will be closing the Yahoo group and going forward, all news/updates will be posted on the Meetup Group.

However, because of the different nature of the platforms and considering the privacy and choice of our users we will not be migrating any users to Meetup. We urge you to join the  Barcamp Bangalore Meetup Group to receive future Barcamp Bangalore Updates. Similar to the Yahoo Group we promise to keep the Meetup group spam free.

Planning Meets

We’ve always been open for people to help us with the planning and this tradition continues. Planners meet every Sunday at 11am, Cafe Coffee Day, Jayanagar 4th T block and we would be more than happy to have you join us to help us plan for the next Barcamp.
