Target Audience

ProductCamp sessions are broken out by…

  • Fundamentals: Sessions targeted to participants with little or no experience in the topic who are seeking to discuss core knowledge and skills.
  • Advanced: Sessions targeted to participants with previous experience in the topic who are seeking to increase their depth of knowledge in that topic.
  • Entrepreneurs: Sessions targeted to startup entrepreneurs and small business owners that are looking to create new products, but need a solid understanding of product management/product marketing principles, but do not have a dedicated product management/product marketing role.

Breakout Session Length

Sessions run between 30 and 35 minutes including questions.

Voting Takes Place in Advance

ProductCamp registrants vote IN ADVANCE on the topics they want to see presented.  As of now, voting is scheduled for May 10-17 but this may change.  Registrants will be notified by email once voting starts.
