It's been an even better year for Barcamps in Ghana in 2012. After 5 events in 2011, 2012 will see 8. Barcamp Accra will happen this Saturday at the Methodist University College campus in Dansoman. This is a burgeoning private university with a star student in Raindolf Owusu. It also has great young people like Jeffery Abas who is part of the Barcamp Accra organizing team. The press release for the event is below. You might be interested in the impressive line-up of mentors Barcamp Accra will have. Gasmilla, the Azonto King, and singer of Aboodatoi is coming. And we'll be having Auntie Muni Waakye for lunch! Auntie Muni herself will be there to share her story. Yea, these Barcamps are getting better and better and more interesting. Oh, the currrent Miss Ghana might not be there, but the former Miss Ghana who organized this year's event will be - Inna Patty.

The theme is "Removing the fear of failure as a start of success". This idea was first meeted by Edward Tagoe, one of the GhanaThink team members. The theme was finally chosen by public vote and the public also suggested some of our mentors like Herman Chinery-Hesse, Mac-Jordan Degadjor and Dorothy Gordon.

Be there or be square! Press Release below
