We had a great success with the original bpmCamp @ Stanford in January, this year.? We're now ready to start the ball rolling for a bpmCampin Austin.? We're just at the formative stages, but we are targeting dates in October, and currently scouting locations in Austin.? We've also had tentative discussions with Stanford about having another bpmCamp at Stanford, but a bit later in the year 2011 (maybe even in the summer of 2011). Our goals and thought process are much the same as last time:
- BPM Conferences are good, but BPM Conferences are (usually) too general, too big, too expensive, and stuck on platitudes because of the above.
- bpmCamp is intimate. It was 40 people (max capacity) at Stanford.? We'll figure out our max capacity for Austin, it might be just a tad bigger.
- bpmCamp is specific.? We will be focused on the Lombardi Software products acquired by IBM earlier this year, and now known as IBM BPM Blueprint (aka Blueprint), and Websphere Lombardi Edition (aka Lombardi Edition aka Teamworks).? (We would welcome the chance to organize a bpmCamp for another product offering - but we need a partner to help)
- bpmCamp is affordable.? Exact price is TBD, but it won't break your budget.
- bpmCamp is focused on what attendees care about.? Topics are crowd-sourced, so anyone attending can help shape the agenda.
If you're interested in attending, watch this space, or keep an eye on posts with the tag bpmCamp. If you're interested in sponsoring bpmCamp, we'll have more details about that soon. If you have any questions in the meantime, contact us at: bpmCamp Email:
