My First Webmaster Malaysia Gathering

There are like tons of forums around and it so happens one of them I rarely visit is Webmaster Malaysia. However, one of the things I currently like is to attend casual events or gatherings organized either by forum members, bloggers or others who’d like to discuss on a topic of similar interest.

The Webmaster Malaysia forum community recently had a gathering at The Curve yesterday (July 5, 2008). This event was planned a month ago and was going to be sponsored by the website hosting company; Exabytes. Thank you, Exabytes and I look forward to seeing you guys supporting the local Internet industry players like us in future.

In summary, here is the venue, the speakers, the crowd and the sponsor. Click on the image to view a larger version.

I hope to meet with you guys again and the next event I’ll be attending is BarCamp Malaysia. If you’re wondering what’s a BarCamp, excerpt from Wikipedia:

BarCamp is an international network of user generated conferences รขโ‚ฌโ€ open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants รขโ‚ฌโ€ often focusing on early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats.

See you guys there – if you’re attending.
