#THATCampSoCal – Camper UPDATE

Greetings, Campers!

We are just over one week away from THATCamp SoCal 2012, which takes place Friday and Saturday September 14-15, 2012 at Cal State Fullerton!

It has been months since most of you registered. If you are now unable to attend, *please email back to advise of your cancellation*. We still have some latecomers (students) on a wait list, who would like to move into your spot if you can no longer attend. And I would also like to adjust the catering count, if you can no longer attend, so that our generous food sponsors are not spending extra money. We hope you get to catch another THATCamp!

If you still plan to attend, please make note of the following items prior to arriving on campus next Friday.

Please make sure you regularly check our blog for last minute changes and info all next week (socal2012.thatcamp.org)!

  • Our Schedule has been posted online (socal2012.thatcamp.org/schedule).
  • Most of our Friday Workshops have been finalized (socal2012.thatcamp.org/schedule/workshops). We still have room to accommodate extra workshops if there is a 1.5-2 hour topic you would like to teach.
  • Saturday’s unconference Sessions will get brainstormed and scheduled Friday afternoon at our 3:30pm Scheduling Session.



  • Campers should plan to bring a laptop or tablet (with chargers); our venue is *not* set in computer labs with desktop computers.
  • Most of Friday’s Workshops require you to bring a laptop for the actual hands-on work. If you do not have access to a laptop, you will still be able to sit in on workshops to observe and take notes. A tablet won’t be able to accommodate the software used in most of the Workshops.


  • A continental breakfast and coffee will be provided each morning — sponsored by CSUF’s Pollak Library, and CSUF’s College of Humanities & Social Science!
  • Subway Sandwiches will be provided for lunch on Friday — sponsored by the Occidental College Center for Digital Learning & Research.
  • Roundtable Pizza will be provided for lunch on Saturday — sponsored by the UCLA Center for Digital Humanities.
  • Extra mid-day coffee provided courtesy of a THATCamp grant from Microsoft (yes, Microsoft).
  • Want more options? Check our campus dining (on your own) at: www.csuf-food.com/foodcourt/foodcourt.asp.
  • Join us Friday night for Happy Hour (on your own) across from campus at the Cantina Lounge across from campus.

Please feel free to contact me if you have additional questions or concerns.

We look forward to learning and networking with you next week at THATCamp SoCal!
