In this balmy Austin winter it’s easy to get down waiting for the spring. Not to worry, ProductCamp Austin is coming back on February 18th to surround you with old friends, help you make a few new ones, and reinvigorate that communal feeling that trailed off as you plucked the last drying fir needles from the floorboards.
This year we’re making it easier than ever to learn and contribute at every level, from our volunteer opportunities, to our Essentials category of presentations for those looking to pick up new skills (and friends). So come join your Community on Saturday, February 18th.

While we all count down to the 18th, here are a couple of great ways for you to get plugged in now:
ProductCamp Austin in an un-conference made possible entirely by our community. That means we need you. Check out our website for a list of some open volunteer opportunities. Even if you don’t see something that jumps out for you, please check off that you’d like to volunteer during registration if you’d like to get involved. We’ll always try to find a place for you.
Help Us Help
You may remember our wildly successful drive to raise school supplies for Oak Springs Elementary during ProductCamp Austin 7. We would like to start a tradition of giving back to our community, but we need your help. The coordination of these drives requires someone passionate about their cause that can helm the effort. If you have a charity you would like to champion please send us your thoughts and ideas.
Teach Your Community
For those interested in proposing sessions, start working on your presentations now. The sessions proposal form will open on Monday, January 16th. To help better target topics to each participant’s interest, we added a new session classification called “Target Audience”. This new classification includes PM Essentials for those new to a topic of interest and are looking for core knowledge and skills, PM Advanced for those that already have experience in a topic and are looking to increase their depth of knowledge and PM for Entrepreneurs for those that are in startups or small businesses and want to learn to apply the principals of Product Management/Product Marketing to their businesses. To get you started, read our current information on proposing a session.
What is ProductCamp?
ProductCamp Austin is the premiere event for Product Management, Product Marketing, and Marketing professionals to teach to, learn from, and network with each other. ProductCamp is an un-conference, meaning that it is FREE to you! Your only cost is your participation – bring your ideas, lead a session in your area of expertise, facilitate a roundtable discussion, network, or volunteer.
