Saturday: BootCamp PGH

Why I’ve not been blogging these last few weeks: I’ve been helping organize a terrific event that will happen Saturday. To wit:

BootCamp PGH logo. Yes, the background is a citified camouflage, thanks for noticing.

BootCamp PGH is a free one-day, immersive "entry level" workshop designed to educate students, small businesses and corporate communications professionals on the power and possibilities of new media. (That is, blogging, podcasting, social networks, and the like.)

WHEN: Saturday, April 21, from 9 AM to 4 PM
WHERE: The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, 420 Boulevard of the Allies, 15219
WHO: New media experts, aspiring new media creators, communications and PR personnel, and you!

153 registered attendees and counting… Register today! Preregistration closes at 4pm Friday, April 20. Walk-ins are welcome but they’ll miss out on freebies and giveaways at the event. Find out more and register at the BootCamp PGH website.

I’m leading the Intro to Blogging session at 10am with my fellow Pittsburgh Bloggers Christina Schulman and Mike Woycheck. Lots of fun and useful information will be delivered. Then I’ll be hanging out in the Mentor Lounge much of the day, helping people try out what they’re learning and answering questions one-on-one. I hope to see you there!

  1. Alas, I won’t be able to attend on Saturday but hope the workshop goes well. What a great service you guys are providing for local bloggers and business people. Susan

  2. I’m so glad to have had the opportunity to attend this event. It was interesting to see what’s happening, and what everyone is doing, in the new media scene in Pittsburgh, since I’m so new to the area.

    I especially appreciated the spirit of community, and sincere desire to bring people together and teach them stuff, for free!

    Thanks for letting your mailing list know about this event, and thanks again for your blogging workshop – it totally inspired me to finally start up my blog.

  3. Emilie, I’m so glad you got a lot out of the event. I thought it went well — and it’s absolutely wonderful that you were inspired to start up your blog!

    PodCamp Pittsburgh 2 should be a great follow-on, even for those who couldn’t make it to BootCamp. I’ll post a formal announcement about it when the dates are finalized.
