We are getting ready for the XMas Campfire edition and that’s why we are helping you for this too! We would like to thank Akaparis for offering us their support with this useful app.

The WhereCamp-Guide will help you to be forearmed for the new experience. It comes with: useful information about the event itself, navigation instructions for the venue, the agenda, the contact details of the organizers.
During the WhereCamp the agenda will be updated for including topics of all Barcamp Sessions. 

If you have an Android Smartphone you can download the Event App from the store. The App provides cool features such as directly saving agenda entries into the personal calendar, calling people out of the App whenever you run into problems or navigate to the event’s building and much more.
