Barcamp Artsakh




IT Development Center and Ministry of Culture and Youth of NKR are the main organizers of Artsakh Barcamp starting from 2010. In 2010 the first Barcamp Atsakh was hold in Stepanakert. It was a two day event: The workshops were organized in Stepnakaert for the first day, then the second day was hold in Shushi. In 2011 Barcamp Artsakhw as totally hold in Shushi. The group had an idea to hold the event in remote villages of Artsakh, but in those years the internet connection was unavailable for those remote regions. This is the first year that Artsakh Barcamp team decided to hold Barcamp in its traditional classic way, in tents. Barcamp Artsakh 2014 was hold in Tsmakahogh village. Tsmakahogh is 20 km far from Shushi. The event attracted more than 70 participants. Actually this is not the highest rate of participation, as during previous years the event attracted more hundreds of participants. But this year the organizers had to limit the participation number because of tent nymbers and other facilities for open air stay and event.
