We made it!

It’s been an amazing few months getting ready for the first ever Podcamp Halifax and we’re so happy to have watched the community pull together to make this event happen. With 240 people registered, a full roster of presenters, and keynote Andrew Baron alive and well after his first experience at a Halifax pub, we can already call Podcamp Halifax a huge success.

We’re already at Alderney Gate putting the final touches on the venue but we can’t wait to see you and get the show on the road. For those who can’t make it, stay tuned for video of as many presentations as we can cover or keep an eye on #podcamphfx on Twitter for the latest updates as they happen.

Thanks again for your support as this has all come together and let’s make sure we rock this!

PrintWe’re in the home stretch, folks! We’re a mere two sleeps away from Atlantic Canada’s first Podcamp event at Alderney Gate. Hopefully you’re already registered and hyped up for what’s sure to be an incredible day. But why let the fun stop there?

Make sure you bring $10 with you so you can bring home this classy t-shirt commemorating the inaugural Podcamp Halifax. It’s good for the office, social occasions, weddings, dates and job interviews. Trust us.
