There’s a band called JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound who are determined that Baltimore is the new Brooklyn, but we’re nominating Toronto. We’re taking xAPI Camp to Toronto on November 17th, 2015 and we are excited about it, to boot. This camp will be co-located with the Canadian Society of Training and Development’s annual conference. The CSTD 2015 Conference & Trade Show runs 11/18-11/20.
This is the first camp outside of the US and the Canadian following of xAPI is strong. There are many companies using xAPI and building tools with xAPI in Toronto, but also through the rest of Canada. We’re also excited to welcome Myra Travin back as a speaker, she will be taking the Learning Ecology Framework a step further going into the Personalization Data realm.
As Aaron comes up Strange Brew references and I try to stop Aaron from asking every single person in Canada to bring him Ringolos, we want you to get involved.
The registration page is here. You get a good discount on the camp if you’re attending the CSTD conference (we’ll be speaking at the main conference, too). At the Camp you will spend part of the day listening to short presentations and part of the day working in breakout groups. Bring your problems, bring your challenges — don’t feel like you don’t know enough to participate. There will be plenty of time and people to help you along your own path.
We’re accepting speaking proposals through 10/5. Submit your proposal here. We’re looking to continually stay on the edge of what’s happening with xAPI at each event. These will again be short, to the point, no filler presentations (about 10 minutes.) We’re looking for new case studies with tangible outcomes, big ideas, and big challenges.
Not to worry if you can’t do Toronto, we’re also accepting proposals for San Francisco in February, Orlando in March, and Austin in June.
Get in touch! We love making our sponsors part of this experience. A lot of what’s happening with xAPI is because of the work our sponsors do. We’re looking forward to celebrating this rapidly changing world together.
