The brilliant people at Green & White and P@SHA in collaboration with tech leaders of our IT industry have started the Pakistani version of the renowned BarCamp – and after the resounding success of the first edition in Karachi and another scheduled on Thursday for Islamabad – the geeks and nerds would land in Lahore and assemble at Vahzay’s premises on 1st of February, 2008.
Date: 1st February, 2008
Time: 1800 hrs – 2100 hrs
Venue: VahZay Pvt Ltd. 19-A1, E-II, Gulberg-III, Lahore
Directions: From the Liberty roundabout on Main Blvd. Gulberg, go towards Qaddafi stadium. When you get to the roundabout just before the stadium gate, make a left. The Hockey stadium should now be on your right.
Go about 200 meters and make a left in the first street you see on your left. There is a Punjab Book Board office at the corner with a big sign up-front, hard to miss.
Go 100 meters and the first gate on the left is VahZay. There is plenty of parking along the wall that runs in this street from the turn all the way to VahZay gate.
Have a look at this map.

Who should attend? Quoting Osama Hashmi of G&W:
Bring everyone around you who has the spark to change the world but doesn’t think there is enough support from the industry to get going. These people are here to help.
Bring your demos if you’re looking for funding, bring your ideas if you’re looking to start on the demo.
Bring your cameras and camcorders.
Finally, bring an open mind so we can all have a lot of fun, sip some deep deep coffee and talk startup.
This is your chance to draw inspiration from the people who’ve ‘been there, done that’. The event is FREE and OPEN TO ALL – it’s an event not to be missed. So, come one, come all!
