We need you!

31 Oct

ProductCamp is an unconference, which means you as participants create the afternoon program. You all determine the content of the sessions, which is a great way to address topics that are relevant to you, and share knowledge with one another. We know that good sessions are the main reason people attend ProductCamp, that’s why we need you!

What’s a session?

  • You give a presentation about a a topic you’d like to share your knowledge on (and discuss)
  • You have a topic you’d like to know more about, then you can host a group discussion

Don’t be shy, you’d be suprised how relevant your work experience and knowledge can be for others. Some examples from previous editions:

  • Scrum & Specifications
  • Product Lifecycle management
  • Learning from customers
  • Lean startup usability
  • Implementing Minimal Viable Product.

Pitching your idea

Before lunch, everyone will have the opportunity to pitch their sessions, and then we will put together the session schedule for the afternoon. There will be three parallel tracks, so there is plenty of opportunity to host a session.

We ‘re eager to find out what you would like to learn more about, so head over to our UserVoice forum now and start adding, or go to our website to read more about the schedule for the day.

Announcing ProductCamp Amsterdam 2014

Please contact us at productcampamsterdam@gmail.com if you have any tips. We’re open to any feedback and suggestions.

What’s next?

We will update this site over the coming weeks with information about participants, sessions, sponsors and more. The registration page will also go live soon. So please check back regularly, and spread the word!

Why go to ProductCamp?

The most important reason: there’s nothing quite like it! ProductCamp is the first and only event about product management in the Netherlands.

For most of the people the most important reason is to meet other product managers, share knowledge & experiences and learn new ways to manage products. Not only because it’s fun to meet new product people; some are the only product manager at their company and ProductCamp is a way for them to benchmark ideas and brainstorm about how to deal with challenges.

The Team

Five people have volunteered to help with the organisation this year:

  • Jasper Wognum
  • Ivar Pruijn
  • Iris van de Kieft
  • Thijs Weenk
  • Daniel Crompton
