Just a quick plug about PodCampAZ 2010 coming up here on November 20 & 21, a event I will be attending.
I attended PodCampAZ 2009 last year, really by chance. I had a weekend free and we were already visiting family in the Phoenix area for the Thanksgiving holidays.
Based on reading the website before the event, I figured I’d get a chance to see what the world of new media and social networking looked like since most of my career was spent in data-center technologies.
The event was free, so there was very little to loose other than time, energy, and being away from my kids for a couple days.
The 2 day un-confernece (this is explained on the website) was really amazing, the power of like-minded people coming together to share information and experiences was eye-opening. I attended presentations on WordPress, Videocasting, Podcasting, and Social Media software. I also met so many people who were experts in their respective areas.
There is value in the overall socialness of this event and its ability to bring people who want to share, PodCampAZ is a great place to experience & learn from the talent in the Phoenix area first hand.
