Other topics include learning how to conduct fast searches on Google, learning the best job seeking strategies as well as to get the most out of using the Internet.

The Barcamp Organising team also arranged an outing to visit and to bring some study materials to Kampong Cham Orphanage Center to celebrate International Volunteer Day. With about 15 volunteers, the team also did garbage collection along the roads running parallel to the orphanage and along Kampong Cham riverside in the evening on the 5th of December.
