What is ProductCamp?
In the spirit of BarCamp, ProductCamp is a collaborative, user organized unconference, focused on Product Management and Marketing topics. At ProductCamp there are no “attendees,” since everyone participates in some manner: This means you get to present, lead a roundtable discussion, share your experiences, help with logistics, help secure sponsorships, or volunteer. ProductCamp is a great opportunity for you to learn from, teach to, and network with professionals involved in the Product Management, Marketing, and Development process! From ProductCamp experience, it is understood that everyone has something they can teach and everyone has something they can learn.
ProductCamp Berlin is “the place” for active, novice and experienced Product Managers and Marketers to develop their craft, learn from each other, network in meaningful ways and have a lot of fun.
ProductCamp Berlin is part of a larger series of product management-related unconferences. See productcamp.org for a list of ProductCamps in your area or check out how to get to Berlin.

ProductCamp Berlin and YOU….
ProductCamp Berlin is about Product Management but is open to all. The event is free to attend thanks to our wonderful sponsors. What is expected of you, if you join the community and attend the event, is to participate. There are no spectators; no one will be putting on a workshop, session, or event for you, but lots of people will come together for learning, networking and having fun with you. Got something to something to help others understand and use? Offer to lead a ProductCamp session. Skilled and semi-skilled folks are needed for the behind-the-scenes work of the events and organizations, so volunteer. More information about getting connected with ProductCamp Berlin is below.
No spectators, just participants!
This BarCamp-rule does not mean everybody has to do a Session, but everybody should come prepared to participate in an active manner.
» Prepare a presentation or moderate a workshop.
» Participate in discussions, ask questions during the sessions, support the presenter, be critical.
» Take photos and post them online for others.
» If you have a blog, write about ProductCamp Berlin – before, during, and after the camp.
» Get in touch with other campers and most importantly be open for new ideas and topics.
Be proactive, YOU are the ProductCamp Berlin! We want this event to cover the breadth of Europe and take a full international focus and we’re relying on each attendee to help make it so. You’re probably not going to want to miss this!
