Product Camp DC 2014

Last weekend, I attended Product Camp DC for the first time. For those who don’t know, PCamp is a community organized un-conference for product people (product managers, UXers, etc.). It was an exhausting day, but exhausting for all the right reasons.  I attended six workshops in all and took away a ton of useful insights and resources. The hard part about attending conference isn’t absorbing the information, but doing something with it when you get back to the “day-to-day.” That’s why I try to focus on creating action items for after conference. See the links below to access the notes I took for each of the sessions I attended:
