Despite the weather, the first Mar del Plata Barcamp was a huge success! More than 100 attendees made this a unique event in the city. Thanks to its real-time data entry capabilities, Attender was able to display all the information about the talks as soon as the board was full.

There were four rooms with six time slots filled with very interesting talks about technology and other topics. Because many attendees came on time, the talks were moved half an hour early. This wasn't a problem for Attender, with it simple backend, moving the sessions in time was quick and painless!

This day marked also the debut of Attender in the Android platform. There were a lot of devices, from old 2.3 phones to modern ones with the last version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich. The app behaved perfectly in all these platforms, in hand with the already great and polished iOS app.

All this made the first Barcamp in Mar del Plata an incredible event, and it was enjoyed so much by their attendees and organizers that we even dance the Harlem Shake to finish an amazing afternoon.
