Tech Camp Memphis 2013 was inarguably one of the most successful Tech Camps to date. Led by Dave Barger, an amazing team of volunteers, and tons of sponsors, there were five tracks that informed and entertained over 100 attendees. From high-school students, to seasoned professionals, TCMem 2013 had something for everyone. The tracks and speaker list can be found below.
Developer 101 Track
Led by Gerald Lovell, the Developer 101 track provided a foundational lesson in software development for people of all ages and backgrounds. Participants spent most of the morning participating in a series on interactive lessons interjected with prepared instruction.
A new, experimental track led by StartCo gave participants the opportunity to test out lean principles for building a product idea into a business plan. Throughout the day, sessions guided participants through creating planning strategies and creating development and marketing plans for a fictional product. The final result was then presented at the closing ceremony.
