Our coverage on all the technology showcases at DemoCamp.
Tbreak was invited to attend the first DemoCamp of 2011 and this time around the venue was changed from Knowledge Village to the American University of Dubai. Organized by Dubai Internet City, DemoCamp is a means of showcasing promising technology products developed in the UAE to entrepreneurs and the media.
The Question Company's Andrew Meikle and James Oliver
The event was presented by Andrew Meikle and James Oliver, the guys behind The Question Company, a UAE-based text-based question and answer service. They ran through a quick five minute introduction of DemoCamp and then indulged in some shameless self-promotion for their company – all in good fun. Their introduction was followed by Rami Osman from Qualcomm taking to the stage and explaining how Qualcomm was an industry leader in Wireless Technology and Innovation, only to be thwarted by a storm of counter-claims from an audience member forcefully stating that Qualcomm was not an industry leader but simply an industry follower. The guys from The Question Company then stepped in to save Rami from the barrage of questions and help the event move on to what’s really important – the demos.
