StarCamp 2007 was a self-organising conference in the spirit of BarCamp, where anyone can attend for free, and everyone who attends is strongly encouraged to be involved in presenting, giving tutorials, selling coffee or stickers, or writing code in the projects. It was aimed at those interested in technology, new media, and social networking in Cape Town, and intended to give anyone passionate enough to want to speak a platform to share their passion.

StarCamp built on the 2006 BarCamp Cape Town, the GeekDinner movement started post-BarCamp Cape Town, and the 27dinner phenomenon of finding new ways to get people together to learn from each other and to learn of each other, to help build Cape Town as a leader in business and technology.
