TC Camp - the tech comm unconference
January 26, 2013 at 8:30 AM - 7:00 PM
Cloud Center, Sunnyvale
TC Camp is a way to bring together people in the techcomm profession who have a shared interest or who want to work together on something. Unconferences aim to break the barrier between speaker and attendee — so everyone can contribute to the discussion.
TC Camp is an Unconference.
An unconference is an event where users suggest topics, get together and discuss them in detail. This camp is focused on Technical Communications issues, skills, challenges, and the various applications used by technical communicators.
The conference agenda is created on the day of the event by the attendees during the general session first thing in the morning. Anyone can suggest a topic by writing a short description on the topic suggestion sheet. Each topic is voted on separately.
