ProductCamp 2017 is coming!

In the spirit of BarCamp, Product Camp Dublin is a collaborative, user organized unconference, focused on Product Management and Marketing topics.

At Product Camp Dublin there are no “attendees,” since everyone participates in some manner: This means you get to present, lead a roundtable discussion, share your experiences, help with logistics, help secure sponsorships, or volunteer.

Product Camp Dublin is a great opportunity for you to learn from, teach to, and network with professionals involved in the Product Management, Marketing, and Development process!

We will be looking for content suggestions, along with volunteers to help with the organisation, so please contact us here.
