ScreencastCamp 2013 Session Content

What is ScreencastCamp?

For those who are wondering, “What the heck is a ScreencastCamp?” ScreencastCamp is where screencasters from all over the country gather to network, learn, and collaborate to grow as screencasters. The un-conference event is setup in a way that allows the participants to pick topics, lead the discussion on that topic, and share knowledge in sessions. The event boosts learning with an open environment. If you love making screencasts and learning about technology, but was not able to attend any sessions this year, this blog post will prove to be a valuable resource for you.
