Help Us Plan TransparencyCamp 2013


Even though TransparencyCamp 2013 is roughly 12 months away, we’re already thinking ahead to how we can make next year’s event even better.

Our Labs team just published a round-up of “The Tech Behind TransparencyCamp”. Want to learn more about the TCamp web and mobile sites, the incredible level of detail that went into optimizing registration (not a joke), and our choice to use Etherpad over other wiki/note-taking options? Jeremy Carbaugh has your answers and more, and gives a sneak peek at what we’re thinking for next year.

We also want to hear from you. If you attended TCamp, please let us know what you think by taking a minute or two to complete this short survey: Last year’s survey results had a direct impact on this year’s Camp: So, for those of you who appreciated our abundance of maps and wayfinding materials, noticed an uptick in student participation, and enjoyed the lightning talks, you can thank your fellow TCampers for their input.

Some of our user-directed signage in the wild. We renamed all classrooms with new TCamp names based on which floor of the building they were located on to improve findability. Great success over last year! Original picture and more TCamp snaps on Flickr.
