You decide the topics. Create your own learning session. Lead a discussion or facilitate a panel on a topic near and dear to you. Vote for the talks you want to hear.
You pick your agenda. Go to the talks that interest you. If you don't like that session, it is easy to switch to another session. With the top minds gathered together sharing expertise, and best practices affecting product management today, there are bound to be some good learning opportunities.
You participate. Everyone who attends actively participates in some manner: presenting, leading a discussion, sharing best practices, helping with logistics, securing partnerships or volunteering with event logistics. ProductCamp is based on the BarCamp model and is designed to be a fun, thought-provoking, and a rewarding experience. ProductCamps are now held in many major cities worldwide.
