Said Amarpreet Kalkat, a participant at the Barcamp: “This is a great place to connect with like-minded people in the fraternity and discover and discuss new ideas. This platform provided by SAP Labs gives me an opportunity to meet people with whom I would otherwise interact only on the virtual space. Exchanging ideas with people also helps us learn and unlearn the dynamics of technology trends.”

The topics of discussion at the event have evolved over the years and we are glad to see more technology enthusiasts share our passion.”
