Last week, October 12 to 16, the Campus Party Millennium was held in our city, Granada (Spain). This time, Campus Party wanted to make a very special edition within the program of events framed in the celebration of the Millennium of the Kingdom of Granada.
Campus Party is a massive technology event annually held in 5 countries (Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Ecuador and Spain). And now they are working in the organization of the first Campus Party at Silicon Valley.
The following is a video that summarizes the 5 days that lasted the Campus Party Millennium (“the Campus“):
During these days we have intensely lived everything that happened in “the Campus” and it has been an incredible experience.
This edition has gathered 600 participants from 22 countries of the Mediterranean Basin. Under the theme “Technology for Peace”, all kinds of conferences, workshops and activities have taken place in the Party. We could enjoy listening lots of expert speakers on topics as varied as entrepreneurship, astronomy, social revolutions in the Arab world, 360º video, nanotechnology or grid computing.
But, beyond the extensive program of contents, there is an activity that is essential in an event like this: networking. Being able to live with participants from so many countries and varied profiles (developers of software, hardware, marketing guys or managers) is a unique opportunity to share experiences, exchange ideas and open minds to new projects.
Furthermore, among all participants, the organization selected the 15 best projects from each of the following areas: Innovation, Creativity and Social Media, and Science. Doolphy had the honor of being chosen as one of the finalists in the Innovation area. Ultimately the winner in this category was Rehabilitation Gaming System. From here, we want to send our most sincere congratulations for their great work.
For us, it was a pleasure to have the opportunity of showing our project to the rest of participants and the panel of judges, among whom was Gary Stewart, Director of Wayra Spain.
To get a better idea of all that happened at this special edition of Campus Party, you can take a look to the videos that are available on Campus Live and the pictures that we’ve included in our Facebook page.
From Doolphy, we want to thank the Campus Party organizers for bringing this event to our city. To all participants we met, we want to send our regards and we hope to see you soon. Perhaps in another Campus Party, who knows? ;)
Up With Your Projects!
