If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area (or within a short flight), TC Camp is coming up in 23 January 2016.
If you haven't been to an unconference, you should know these aren't like regular conferences. There are no juried presentations. No powerpoint. No waiting through the next session so you can attend the one you're really interested in.
You know how it is at a regular conference, the best conversations happen in the hallways. Well, TC Camp is all hallway.
Session topics are chosen by you! They're chosen by the attendees on the day of the event. Attendees vote on the session topics. Topics with enough votes get scheduled into the agenda. Because you vote on the session topics, you're guaranteed to find sessions you're interested in! This is one conference where everything is relevant to Y-O-U. And at the end of the day, in the summary session you can hear about what everyone else learned in all the other sessions.
Because this is not an Arbortext conference specifically, there's absolutely no guarantee that any Arbortext-specific topic will get into the agenda. If we had enough Arbortext people descending on the event, there would definitely be enough of a critical mass to decide 1-2 topics.
Still, there are plenty of other topics to vote on. TC Camp attendees are made up of content creators, publishers, and the tools people who support them. We get close to 200 people attending, talking, and wrapping their arms around tricky subjects.
Just an event to keep in mind when you're planning your 2016 and 2017 travel. Keep an eye on TC Camp. And, seriously, someone should plan an Arbortext invasion!
