Cambodia to hold first-ever IT campCambodia’s first ever computing camp is due to be held in Siem Reap this month to promote literacy on cyber security, open-source software, social innovation and the benefits of open data, according to its organisers, the Cambodia Daily reported.

The five-day ICT Camp 2018, organised by Open Development Cambodia (ODC), an NGO, will be held in the northern Cambodian city from December 17 to 21.

Thy Try, ODC executive director, said the themes for the camp were chosen by its funders through a survey.

The idea for the event came from a similar annual event held in Bangkok for all Mekong region countries since 2008.

Camp participants come from a variety of fields, both in the public and private sectors, he added, who wish to receive training on best practices when using modern technology.

“In our upcoming camp, we have a small budget for participants who have creative ideas or have problems but do not know how technology can solve them, so they can contact me with the organising committees or experts and propose projects,” Try said.

“We will give them grants to implement the projects for three months after the camp. It doesn’t mean that you can only study, but if you study on a particular thing and want to test it, they can test it, and this is what makes the camp different from other camps.”
