May 21, 2012 - PRLog -- Silicon Valley - It’s time for people looking for a career tune-up in this troubled economy to register for camp. Silicon Valley Code Camp ( is a free – yes, free – weekend conference October 6 and 7, 2012, for all software developers who want to share information, network, and learn new skills.

Global Product Management Talk is curating the first product management track at Silicon Valley Code Camp.  There is opportunity for a total of 9 sessions to comprise the Product Management Track - up to 5 product management sessions on Saturday, October 6 and an additional 4 sessions on Sunday, October 7.  

Product management is a business optimization function that oversees technology and product all the way from development through product launch, market, delivery and later sunsetting.  Product Management is becoming more mainstream.  Software development teams benefit from understanding product management principles and the product management lifecycle beyond the development stage. Product Management is an attractive career path for developers who want to more strategically affect product outcomes and the business case.  There are unique challenges, opportunities and rigor necessary at each phase of the product lifecycle that necessitate different tools to discern threats, respond effectively to opportunities, and nimbly identify appropriate procedures within each phase.

Businesses where software development teams understand the product management function and product management teams are well defined, guarantee successful products are delivered that delight customers and increase revenue.

For Product Camp presenters, most sessions appropriate for Product Camp will also be welcome at Code Camp based on past year session titles.

About Code Camp:

Code Camp is a new type of all-volunteer “community event” where developers learn from fellow developers. This is the seventh year for Code Camp, and its popularity continues to grow. More than 2,250 people attended last year, and over 200 sessions were conducted.

The location for this Saturday-Sunday meeting remains the same: Foothill College in Los Altos, Calif. And everything is free – from registration to coffee and lunch.

Sessions at Code Camp range from informal “chalk talks” to formal presentations, and the speakers are mixed, from experts used to sharing their knowledge to people with a unique skill they’ve never shared before. Each session lasts 75 minutes.

Silicon Valley Code Camp 2012 is looking for outstanding presentations covering a wide variety of topics. The theme of these topics needs to have something to do with the technical community and preferably be directly or indirectly related to code. We pride ourselves in being vendor agnostic so it does not matter whether you are Steve Jobs, Larry Ellison or Bill Gates, we want you to come and present at our camp. We expect a wide variety of speakers with skills ranging from full time professional speakers to first timers. We actually encourage first time speakers so if you have not spoken before, please have a go! We review the sessions posted and for the most part take them as is, though we may contact you for alterations or further discussions as necessary.

Typically, we accept one presentation per presenter, however we do make exceptions so feel free to contact us if you feel the need to do more than one and we will try to be accommodating. We only have so much capacity so it is not always under our direct control. Feel free to contact us at if you have any questions. We typically close session submission about 6 weeks before the event so if you want to have the best chance of presenting, you had better submit your session soon. Once you submit it, it will immediately become live on our site so make sure you think carefully about your words before pressing the submit button.
