Charting the Next Course


SocialDevCamp East is the Unconference for Thought Leaders of the Future Social Web


Following up on the successful premiere of SocialDevCampEastSpring2008, held in Baltimore in May, SocialDevCamp East Fall 2008 once again invites east coast developers and technology business leaders to come together for a thoughtful discussion of the ideas and technologies that will drive the future of the social web.


Because of the central location, the event draws from Washington, Baltimore, Wilmington, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston — the emerging "Amtrak Corridor" technology scene.


Where is the social web going? It's going mobile, to geocentric services, and to open platforms. Join a community of like minded developers, social media gurus and thought leaders for an unconference to discuss the future of the social web.


We're looking for thought leaders from DC to Boston to meet, forge relationships, and envision the future.


SocialDevCamp East is convenient to the entire east coast corridor via Amtrak. Just travel to Baltimore's Penn Station -- University of Baltimore is two blocks south.

Join SocialDevCamp East on LinkedIn if you're a developer or business professional who wants to be part of the East Coast social media ecosystem.


On Ustream

Firewall & bandwidth permitting, there is a plan to stream at least one session from every time slot via Ustream on the SocialDevCamp East Fall 2008 channel.
