Today the Campus Party Cali began, the most geek week that is celebrated for the seventh year in Colombia, and of course I could not miss a detail. We will be coming to the event every day if possible to document their various activities and talks. Unfortunately this year for work reasons it is not possible for me to camp, but given the enormous advantage that the event is held in the city, it will not be a big problem for me, to be coming every day.
During the 7 days that the event will last, I will relate my experiences and everything that may be of interest, so let’s start by talking about what the experience was from its beginning.
Very early today at noon, the Pacific Valley events center opened its doors to campuseros and a approximate number of 1,700 people of the 3,000 registered made their registration. For my part, I arrived around 3 pm and it took me a little more than an hour and a half to register, which in my opinion, is an aspect to improve for the next few years.
After registration, the campuseros are assigned a tent in which they will camp all week, so as far as they are concerned, this will be their new home. As a curiosity this year for the first time the tents were located outdoorsSo let’s hope it doesn’t rain because here in Cali when it rains it’s in the best tropical style.
Because today is the registration day and location of the campuseros in their respective tents, there are no events or talks (with the exception of the welcome concert), so I was able to pass the time, contemplating the modified equipment (moding), watching the geek merchandise for sale, and of course surfing for a while on the amazing high-speed web with incredible download speeds.
It is not very difficult to find a place to do it thanks to the huge tables throughout the 2 main rooms that host the event. The atmosphere here is charged with a surprising mood and everyone is in something different, you can meet the gamers who are setting up their multi-player games at one table, and then in the next one see those who are downloading all kinds of content taking advantage of the great speed of this network.
This week is just beginning and Campus Party Cali looks very good, so stay tuned for the updates that I will be uploading, for today I say goodbye because I am going to continue enjoying the campus party.
