How to have a great time at PodCamp

March 23, 2011

Are you heading to PodCamp Nashville, the city’s “interactively savvy unconference,” this Saturday? If you are, you’re bound to learn a lot about technology and social media, and you’ll have the chance to network with many of Nashville’s most talented creatives. (If you aren’t going, maybe you should reconsider that decision.)

Have you been to PodCamp before? If not, you may be wondering what to expect. Here’s my advice on how to have a great time while you’re there:

  1. Be friendly and willing meet new people. You will undoubtedly meet fun, creative and ambitious folks during the day.
  2. Follow @pcn on Twitter. Keep an eye on the hashtag #pcn2011, too.
  3. Vote with your feet: If the session you’re in doesn’t interest you as much as you expected, it’s perfectly OK to leave the room and pick another one.
  4. Ask good questions: Presenters appreciate them, and both of you may learn something in the process.
  5. Think about where you’re going to park in advance. Paid lots around the corner aren’t cheap, but you can find good alternatives if you plan ahead. Even better: Carpool or take the bus!
