PodCamp Pittsburgh 6
Location: Point Park University
Date: September 17-18, 2011
PodCamp will take place in the University Center and lunch will be in Lawrence Hall just a block away. I think this is going to be a fantastic move for the event because University Center is an excellent building. If you are familiar with the location you know that this building was previously the home of the Carnegie Library Downtown, before being bought by Point Park five or six years ago.
The new venue offers PodCamp a solution to one problem we’ve struggled with, space. The University Center has a large auditorium and other larger rooms trickling down to smaller classrooms. No only are there great rooms for sessions but there is a ton of space for hallway conversations. I know this will please Justin Kownacki because he spends about 80% of his time at PodCamp in the hallway. If you explore all three floors you will discover many interesting features including the old bank vault that was built into the building.
The event will be separated by two floors, similar to last year. I don’t feel that this is a large concern because the building is neatly constructed and easy to navigate. I can speak for the other organizers that we are very excited to be using this space for PodCamp this year. I think you will be impressed with Point Park and the venue. So save the date and we will be opening registration in early August.
