ProductCamp Utah: Registration Open!

September 10th, 2011!

Register for ProductCamp Utah Here!

Have you ever attended an industry conference or company event and felt like you could have done it much better? Do you feel industry conferences have become too "sterile" or dominated by big vendors? Would you like an opportunity to learn from the many knowledgable product manager and marketers we have in the area? Do you want to share what you are doing right and find out what you are doing wrong?

ProductCamps were designed to solve this problem. ProductCamp is a user-driven, collaborative unconference for Product Managers and Marketers. Having occurred in locations like Silicon Valley, Cambridge, Austin, Atlanta, and Toronto, ProductCamp has come to Utah!

Best of all, ProductCamp Utah does not cost anything to attend and to become a better product manager. However, while it doesn't cost, attendance is not "free". There are no passive attendees. Instead, everyone is referred to as a participant and can help contribute in some way, whether that is volunteering to set up or presenting on a topic you care deeply about or just attending with an attitude of sharing.

Information about ProductCamp Utah is at PCampUtah.org. You can also find out more general information about ProductCamps at productcamp.org, but the best way to really learn about ProductCamp is to experience ProductCamp.

Register for ProductCamp Utah on September 10th, 2011, here!

For specific questions, to volunteer to help, or for sponsorship opportunities, contact pcamputah@gmail.com.

PCamp Utah Coming in September!

7/08/2011 03:39:00 PM by Travis Jensen |

The UtahPMA is in the middle of planning Product Camp Utah. Product Camps have sprung up around the nation as an opportunity for product development professionals to meet and interact with other product development professionals and, most importantly, to learn from them. We aren't quite ready to announce all the details, but while we tidy up some details, make sure to save the date:

September 10th, 2011

We will announce more details shortly, including a call for presenters, but in the meantime, you can learn more about PCamps at http://productcamp.org/. Presenters come from our local product management community (e.g. You), so think of experiences that you have had that you can share with others.

Networking Lunch - 7/14

7/08/2011 03:32:00 PM by Travis Jensen |

The Utah Product Management Association (UPMA) Roundtable Luncheon is Thursday, July 14th, starting at 11:30AM. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other, ask questions, and give input to the future of UPMA. It is also an opportunity to commiserate with other product managers.

This month's topic:

Saying No: Being a great product manager means saying "No". How do you say it and still maintain relationships?

We will be meeting at China House at 177 West 12300 South, Draper, UT (facing West on 123rd South just off of I-15 toward South Jordan).

As always, there is no such thing as a free lunch, so make sure to bring your wallet.

UtahPMA meets every month for lunch on the second Thursday. Mark it on your schedule!
