Barcamp Kumasi came off successfully on Sept 18, 2010 at the College of Engineering auditorium at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi and was under the theme;
Collaboration: The key for Opportunity and Development.
Over 80 people attended, mostly students from KNUST. The program run smoothly and I followed all of it through the many tweets coming from some of the organizing team members and others there. Glad to call the first ever Barcamp in Kumasi a success.
