Friday’s BootCamp Workshops – What you need to know

Hello THATCamp Philly Workshop attendees!

Here’s what you need to know about Friday, September 27:

  1. If you can’t attend, please send a note to THATCampPhilly@gmail.com
  2. Check out the workshop list
    VERY IMPORTANT: Depending on what workshops you’re planning to attend, there may be some prep-work/homework on your part and you’ll find that you need a laptop for every workshop except one — a tablet won’t work. If you don’t do your prep-work before coming to a session, you won’t be ready to participate or you might not be able to catch up in the activities.
    In particular, the WordPress (both Intro and Beyond-Basics), Intro to Programming (both Intro and Hands-On), and Video Editing workshops require certain software packages to be installed prior to the workshops.
  3. AngelCamp is from 8:00-9:00am, before the first workshop.  If you aren’t able to do your workshop prep-work or have other tech support questions, you should attend AngelCamp!  It will be in the back of the big Ullyot Room on the 1st Floor of CHF.
  4. You can attend whatever workshops you want, even if you expressed interest in a different workshop (when you registered or in this week’s “head count” voting).
  5. On Friday, Registration & Coffee starts at 8:30am.
    Workshops start at 9:00am.
    Visit the schedule page for full timing details and room assignments.
  6. Drinks will be available all day.
  7. There’s a Snack Break at 10:45am, after the first workshop.
  8. Lunch break is 12:45pm to 2:00pm.  There are dozens of places to get food close to CHF — check here. If you want to buddy up and go to lunch with 1 to 5 others, there will be a “Dine Around” sign-up list available in the morning — here’s the Dine Around list.
  9. Be tidy with your food and things — we want to be invited back to CHF!
  10. There will be some power strips in each room, but not enough for everyone to be plugged in all the time.  Be a good citizen.  And if you want to help out and make it easier for others to share the juice, you will be appreciated.

Saturday’s Sessions – What you need to know

Featured

Hello Philly THATCampers!

Here’s what you need to know about Saturday, September 28:

  1. If you haven’t already proposed a session idea, login to the website and post your idea for a conversation topic.
    You should have received your welcome/login details within the past several weeks (check your spam too).
  2. UPDATE: We haven’t yet maxed out on attendees for Saturday, so if you want to bring a friend or two, they’re welcome to come!  (If lots of people bring friends, we may have to turn away non-registrants — but it’s a gamble well worth taking.)
  3. If you can’t attend, please send a note to THATCampPhilly@gmail.com as soon as you know — that way we can give your spot to someone on the waiting list and alert them with time to spare (like earlier than the night before!).
  4. On Saturday, Session Proposal Voting runs from 8:30am-9:15am.
    You should be here for this…it’s this process that makes THATCamp unique! And it makes this THATCamp YOUR THATCamp!

    During the voting time, you’ll also have a chance to propose/pitch more sessions.
  5. Visit this page to familiarize yourself with how THATCamp works, for more tips about proposing a session, and details about the general timing of things.
  6. Before coming, you should read over the session ideas other campers have proposed on the website. (This may also inform your own proposal ideas.)
  7. Drinks will be available all day.
  8. Lunch break is 11:30am to 1:00pm.  There are tons & tons of places to get food close to CHF — check here.  If you want to buddy up and go to lunch with 1 to 5 others, there will be a “Dine Around” sign-up list available in the morning — here’s the Dine Around list.
  9. There will be a quick Snack Break from 3:15-3:30pm, just before the final session!  Throughout the day, please do be tidy — we want to be invited back to CHF!
  10. There will be some power strips in each room, but not enough for everyone to be plugged in all the time.  Be a good citizen.  And if you want to help out and make it easier for others to share the juice, your kindness will be appreciated.

See you there.  Bring your brains, ears, and mouths.
