Prototype Camp Chicago delivers a full day of bringing together people who are interested in putting a bit more “build and create” into their craft. Clearly-thought and nearly-there are great places to be!


It Doesn’t Have to Be Finished to Be Awesome

Sometimes getting your idea across is all it takes, but getting your idea across can be daunting. Come spend a Saturday with us and learn how some of the most talented folks on all of the internets are getting their ideas across in various design and development methods!

We'll have a variety of talks on a variety of topics--from research, design, development, and the totally random (we've had a presentation on cupcakes in the past!), you'll learn from people who are building things quickly and iteratively, across just about any medium!

Or if you're so inclined:

Submit a presentation!

Submissions accepted through July 31st.
