TC Camp 2014 [On-Site Event]

Registration is now open!

TC Camp is an Unconference focused on Technical Communications issues, skills, challenges, and the various applications used by technical communicators. The purpose of TC Camp is to provide a local bay area conference for technical communicators that is driven by the members of that community–writers, editors, designers, and the people who support them.

Registration is required. Our last TC Camp had over 100 participants.

      Hi Howard - if you volunteer to help at the camp, you can get a free workshop or lunch, but it depends on how much time you volunteer for.
