Get Insight from the Community of Marketers: ProductCamp Atlanta is on the schedule!

By on January 13, 2011

The 4th installment of PCAMPATL is on the schedule for February 19, 2011 at GTRI.  The last several events continue to validate that the community of technology leaders in Atlanta are committed to sharing best practices in Product Management, Product Marketing and development.  The last event was standing room only – let’s see if we can do that again!

While historically these are often seen at techno-centric events, they aren’t!  Product Camps are for anyone that markets, builds and lead groups who bring products to market.  Representation from B2B companies and Consumer product companies abound.  If you aren’t familiar with what a product camp is or if it’s for you, Paul Young has a great product camp overview on his blog which summarizes what product camps mean for the community/participants.

The event is free, so if you haven’t been to a product  camp make this one.  You can register here.

Not in Atlanta?  ProductCamp.org provides the latest information on PCamps around the globe.   If there isn’t a Product Camp in your community why not start one?  Not sure how?  You can read up on best practices for gearing up a Product Camp in your city and there is even a starter kit available.

By the way, these events wouldn’t happen without volunteers, so when you sign up also help out because PCamp isn’t a spectator event, it’s about participation.  How do you volunteer?  The sign-up form asks you if you want to help or you can ping @jbrett on twitter.

  5. Jon,

    Great points and links. The Product Camp experience is unmatched in terms of learning and networking, and should not be underestimated. Traditionally in the product world we “devalue” products that are free, just as product camps are; but, new participants shouldn’t come in with that attitude. It’s not about being free, it’s about a priceless experience.

    In addition to the links you posted, I’ve written some blog pieces on the experience as well that I thought I’d share:

    Hope to see you in Atlanta…or at any other product camp near you this season!

  7. Greetings!
    I’m organizing a Sept.27 event at the German/French Cultural Institute (Goethe Institute) and need a company such as yours to present on horizons in Social Media.

    Our theme is “Cross-Cultural E-Learning Horizons”. Contact me (CEO) to discuss content; presentation should be approx 4 minutes and then open for questions. Your product marketing work fits the bill!

    Sincerely,
    Patricia Rife, Ph.D.
