I recently posted an event on Facebook for PodCamp Western MA 6 and had a friend ask me, “What exactly IS a PodCamp?”.
By definition it is:
PodCampA PodCamp is a usually free BarCamp-style community UnConference for new media enthusiasts and professionals including bloggers, podcasters, YouTubers, social networkers, and anyone curious about new media. The first PodCamp was held September 8-10, 2006 in Boston, Massachusetts. PodCamps are now being held worldwide.
What I really think she was asking, though, was more like: What is it like? What will I learn? What can I expect at PodCamp?
I have attended all of the PodCamps in Western MA and several in other parts of the country, as well. I truly learn more at these events than I do at any other conference and I wouldn’t miss this for anything. I think the best way for you to better understand what PodCamp Western MA is like is to take a look through my blog posts written after the previous five events. Take a glance, let me know if you have questions and then go REGISTER for this awesome event!
By the way, it is the only PodCamp I know of existing in the entire Northeast!
PodCamp Western MA is scheduled for April 19, 2014 and will be held at Holyoke Community College. You can get more information on the event by visiting their website.
Here are my posts from the PodCamp archives:
PodCamp Western MA 5- I can’t believe it, but it seems I never did a wrap up blog post after this one?!
BUT I do have a bonus post that I am especially fond of: The Gifts That Social Media Brought Me
