What is ProductCamp?
In the spirit of BarCamp, ProductCamp is a collaborative, user-organized unconference, focused on Product Management and Marketing topics. At ProductCamp there are no “attendees,” since everyone participates in some manner: this means that everyone is encouraged to either present, lead a roundtable discussion, share experiences, help with logistics, help secure sponsorships, or volunteer. ProductCamp is a great opportunity for you to learn from, teach to, and network with professionals involved in the product management, marketing, and development process! From ProductCamp experience, it is understood that everyone has something they can teach and everyone has something they can learn.
ProductCamp London is “the place” for active, novice and experienced product managers and marketers to develop their craft, learn from each other, network in meaningful ways and have a lot of fun.
ProductCamp London is part of a larger series of product management-related unconferences. See productcamp.org for a list of ProductCamps in your area or check out how to get to London.
ProductCamp London and YOU….
ProductCamp London is about Product Management but is open to all. The event is free to attend, thanks to our wonderful sponsors. What is expected of you, if you join the community and attend the event, is to participate. There are no spectators; no one will be putting on a workshop, session, or event for you, but lots of people will come together for learning, networking and having fun with you. Got something to help others understand and use? Offer to lead a ProductCamp session. Skilled and semi-skilled folks are needed for the behind-the-scenes work of the events and organizations, so volunteer. More information about getting connected with ProductCamp London is below.
No spectators, just participants!
This BarCamp-rule does not mean everybody has to do a Session, but everybody should come prepared to participate in an active manner. Examples include:
» Preparing a presentation or moderating a workshop
» Participating in discussions, asking questions during the sessions, supporting the presenter, being critical
» Taking photos and posting them online for others
» If you have a blog, write about ProductCamp London – before, during, and after the camp.
» Getting in touch with other campers and most importantly being open for new ideas and topics
Be proactive, YOU are the ProductCamp London! We want this event to cover the breadth of Europe and take a full international focus, and we’re relying on each attendee to help make it so. You’re probably not going to want to miss this!
