ProductCamp San Francisco!


ProductCamp SF is day 3 of Product Bootcamp SF happening at Broadway Studios, 435 Broadway, San Francisco.

200 people have registered. Over 30 sessions were proposed online and voting for morning sessions took place using @ProdThink prioritization tool.

Come prepared to propose and vote for afternoon sessions. All previously proposed sessions not scheduled for morning will be included in voting for afternoon sessions.

Managing Expectations:

This is not any other product camp!

Broadway Studios is a historic venue in a funky North Beach neighborhood - a great place for community, networking and face to face interactions.

What can happen if 200 passionate product people come together to spend the day?

If you waited until the last 36 hours to register, you will probably not have a name tag waiting - so what, get checked in and be patient with volunteers who have been working on the 3 day event all weekend and for weeks in preparation, meetings, stand ups and 12 hour days the past week. Thank them for their commitment to creating a day for product people to spend together!

Plan to participate actively, be agile, flexible and responsive - we don't know what will happen - its up to you to make it a great experience! The volunteers and producers have worked hard to create this opportunity for San Francisco - bring your open mind, willingness to make it work and forward the action, resourcefulness, patience and capacity for chaos - all necessary for being successful in volatile product and startup situations!

What to expect at ProductCampSF?

A unique experience not like any other ProductCamp you've been to.  ProductCamps reflect the surrounding product community and business ecosystem.  ProductCampSF is day 3 of Product Bootcamp, following Startup Product Summit SF2 comprised of 14 speakers in a full day, one track lightning talk presentations and interactions with audience. Plan to improvise and create a great experience with other product people.

ProductCampSF is an opportunity to spend a day with several hundred other members of the San Francisco product community to network, learn and share. Propose a session when you arrive and vote for afternoon sessions.

There are 4 areas with screens to project slides - and many other spaces for meeting in front of laptops for discussion groups.  Not getting value from the session you're in? Use the 2 foot rule and walk to another area to create value - start a session, demo, or talk.

Wifi may not work, projectors may die, sessions may not make it to the schedule - what do you do? Present without slides or use your laptop, have a direct discussion, listen, ask, start anew...

Doors open at 8:00 AM

Broadway Studios is at 435 Broadway between Kearny and Montgomery, search for "Broadway Studios" on google maps (not address - it sends you to the wrong address)

Dress comfortably.

The event is taking place up (a big set of) stairs in what we're calling the Product Ballroom.  There is a downstairs area with a separate entrance where Startup Product Academy will be housed with separate areas we're calling Prototype Piano Lounge, Product Saloon and Product Hub areas for breakout sessions.
