On January 25, 2014, there's an unconference coming up in San Jose, California called TC Camp. Here's the description:
TC Camp is an Unconference focused on Technical Communications issues, skills, challenges, and the various applications used by technical communicators.
The purpose of TC Camp is to provide a local bay area conference for technical communicators that is driven by the members of that community–writers, editors, designers, and the people who support them.
The conference has two parts: a morning workshop ($30) followed by spontaneous sessions (free). Users submit ideas for the sessions and then vote on which sessions they want to actually hold.
I'm planning to attend the event. It looks like a lot of fun. Check out more details at http://www.tccamp.org/. The event will held at Mission College in San Jose.
Last year there were 150 participants. Liz Fraley of Single-Sourcing Solutions is one of the major organizers of the event.
