AdaCamp Bangalore: free for everyone, and applications closing early on September 12

AdaCamp Bangalore is a 50-person unconference for women in open technology and culture, being held on November 22nd-23rd.

A free event for all

We’re pleased to announce that we won’t charge a registration free for AdaCamp Bangalore. Other AdaCamps have had a self-selected tiered registration fee, including a free option, to allow attendees to choose to support the event at whatever level they are able. For our Bangalore event, the Ada Initiative and our sponsors will be covering all our attendees’ registration costs. If you have already paid a registration fee, you’ll be refunded shortly.

New application deadline

AdaCamp Portland models 2We have had so many great applications to AdaCamp Bangalore that we are on track to fill all our spaces and grant all our travel scholarships before the originally planned deadlines. Also, it’s important that our overseas visitors apply and register in time to plan their travel, including visas.

For this reason, we are moving up the deadline for Bangalore applications to Friday, September 12th. Please make sure to apply before that date.

We encourage applications from people who consider themselves “non-technical” or not “technical enough.” We found that many people assume that AdaCamp is only for coders or computer experts, which is definitely not the case! AdaCampers include writers, makers and crafters, researchers & academics, NGO and community workers, activists, and many others. AdaCamp is more interesting and satisfying when we have attendees from a wide range of open technology and culture fields.

About AdaCamp

AdaCamp is a conference dedicated to increasing women’s participation in open technology and culture: open source software, Wikipedia-related projects, open data, open geo, library technology, fan fiction, remix culture, and more. AdaCamp brings women together to build community, share skills, discuss problems with open tech/culture communities that affect women, and find ways to address them.

In 2014, the Ada Initiative is holding three AdaCamps located in technology hubs on three continents: Portland, Oregon, USA; Berlin, Germany; and Bangalore, India.
