Want to learn more about new media — blogging, podcasting, social networking, user generated content — but feel unsure how to start? BootCamp PGH is for you.
BootCamp PGH is a free one-day, immersive “entry level” version of PodCamp. It is designed to educate students, small businesses and corporate communications professionals on the power and possibilities of new media.
Why Should YOU Attend BootCamp?
As we all know, the new media landscape can be daunting to those who’ve just discovered its potential.
Our intent is that, by the end of the day, a BootCamp attendee will be able to:
- understand the basic concepts behind blogging, audio / video podcasting, social networking, and / or new media as a whole
- understand the basics of the three main “tracks” of new media: Art / Content, Technology / Process, Business / Marketing
- begin creating the first examples of their own blogs or podcasts using publicly available programs and web applications
- cultivate a growing network of other new media professionals
WHEN: Saturday, April 21, from 9 AM to 4 PM
WHERE: The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, 420 Boulevard of the Allies, 15219
WHO: New media experts, aspiring new media creators, communications and PR personnel, and you!
