BarCamp Prizren

After five awesome meetings in Prishtina, BarCamp team moved to another city. The first step onset of such meetings outside the capital was Prizren. The Public University of this city for some hours was a gathering point of around 50 young enthusiasts who had the opportunity to discuss with people with remarkable backgrounds. The main speakers on this BarCamp were Besfort Guri and Taulant Ramabaja.

The after café was maybe the best part of that day because real issues were in a very personal manner discussed. People discussed how to solve the issue of internship requirements for ICT students in Prizren, considering that there are practically no local ICT companies. Another hot topic was how to get people together to build projects and companies, they seems to have issues with simply finding one another. BarCamp helped with that.
