As the organizer of THATCamp Pittsburgh I have had one, hectic summer preparing for our inaugural Camp. The challenges are certainly….challenging….to say the least. I believe the results will be worth all of the effort involved, and I am really looking forward to meeting all of the attendees. I am so grateful to the fine folks that have been helping me with this endeavor; Lauren Panton, Tom Lombardi, Aubrey Boothe, Patrick Juola, Elizabeth Roark, Chatham University, George Mason University, Amanda French, Elaine Parsons, Aaron Brenner, Matthew Strauss, Brett Crawford, Rachael Wilkinson, Elisa Beshero-Bondar, Elaine Parsons, Sean McGreevey, Nicole Joniec from THATCamp Philly — to name a few, and in no particular order. If it takes a village to raise a child, it certainly takes a dedicated group of people to put together a THATCamp. Thanks, all of you!
The workshop/session schedule is almost firmed up. We have some exciting workshops planned for all levels of technological savvy (or lack of). The food is being planned, tee shirts being ordered, and some extra-curricular activities are being planned. A fun time will be had by all, I am sure.
So, don’t delay. Register for this exciting unconference today! Hope to see you there!
