Want to learn more about blogging, websites and SEO? PodCamp Toronto 2014, a gathering of digital, creative and tech professionals, is returning to Ryerson University on February 22-23, 2014. The free “unconferences” feature a facilitator, but are participant-driven. Sessions include a diverse group from the new media community including writers, developers, bloggers, designers, podcasters and photographers sharing their knowledge. Over 1,000 people attended PodCamp Toronto last year.
Participants at PodCamp agree to exercise the Law of Two Feet, which means if they are not learning or contributing to a session, they must move on to another discussion. Participants also cross-pollinate ideas by spreading discussion ideas as they go. In addition to lots of conversation in the halls, we always have a vibrant Twitter stream of ideas emerging from sessions.
Below are some of the PodCamp Toronto discussions. Sessions are free, but you must register online.
