We are using this Wiki for the organization of ProductCamp Amsterdam. To sign up for the mailing list or register for the event, please also see www.productcampamsterdam.org


BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees. A ProductCamp is BarCamp for product manager and marketers.

There have recently been several very succesful product camps, for example in Austin and Toronto. And in Amsterdam we have had many succesful tech conferences. There is the general TheNextWeb conference and several developer-oriented gatherings like Fronteers and Kings of Code.

So I thought it was high time for an unconference for us product managers and marketers, and created this page. To get things started I created this page, emailed some product people I know to find out about interested and proposed a date - Sunday 18 October.

Most important thing now is to get in touch with all people who are interested in participating - presenting a session or just attending. Please drop me an email at mark (at) agilician (dot) com if you are interested or simply want to be kept in the loop!

Four sponsors have signed up for ProductCamp Amsterdam already. We are looking for additional logo sponsors who can contribute EUR 200,= for exposre to a great group of product managers and marketers!

Please ask your employer and other companies in your network whether they are interested in sponsoring. We are looking for several logo sponsors who want to associate themselves with ProductCamp Amsterdam for only EUR 200,=. The amount has been chosen to be small in line with the idea of an unconference. And the value is tremendous, as all sponsors will get significant exposure (website, banner, newsletter, t-shirt) to a unique audience of expert product managers and marketers.
