TechCamp, SmugMug, Yelp…

https://remc11.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/www_bullet.jpgIt may seem like summer is a long way away, but begin thinking about attending TechCamp 2009.  During TechCamp you’ll have the opportunity to attend six hands-on sessions as well as hear from excellent presenters.  TechCamp 2009 is on August 25 & 26.  Visit the TechCamp wiki for more information, see last year’s Schedule-at-a-Glance, or to register.
