TC Camp 2015 will be held on Saturday, January 24, 2015 in Santa Clara, CA.

TC Camp refers to itself as the “unconference” where technical communications professionals ask questions and discuss issues, challenges and applications of concern to them. It’s driven by members of that community in the Bay Area and those who support them.

The program is scheduled to run from 8:30AM until 6:00PM with registration beginning at 8:00AM. Hands-on workshops are conducted in the morning after a general session. This year’s workshops will include:

  1. Adobe workshop
  2. Mobile workshop
  3. API workshop
  4. Doc portal workshop

Three one-hour sessions are held in the afternoon followed by a Summary session. The conference’s afternoon agenda is created on the day of the event by the attendees who nominate and vote on topics during the general session first thing in the morning. One attendee must agree to be the facilitator and one the note taker (scribe).

2015 TC Conferences Around the World All on One Map

We previously told you about the awesome Google Maps project Sara Maddox over at the FFeathers blog had set up for Tech Comm on a Map.

Sarah now reports that she has updated the map to show all of the 2015 technical communication conferences that she’s found so far. You can just go to the map, de-select everything except Conferences 2015 and you can see the conference locations for the upcoming year. Hovering over a location gives you details on that conference.

Pretty nifty stuff, we’d have to say. If you have a conference you know about that’s not already on the map, Sarah has all the info needed on the project information page on how you can add it.

What technical communications conference are you planning to attend in 2015? What do you think of the Tech Comm on a Map project? Please leave a comment.
