learnapalooza in Seattle

Seattle is becoming an amazing hub for workplace learning innovation and practice, with great innovation going on in large enterprise such as @Tableau @Microsoft @Amazon @Starbucks @Boeing as well as startups and software pioneers like @Intrepidlearning @skilljar and @oxygenexp

But much of the energy here comes from the vibrant community of practitioners, instructors, coaches, makers, and learning designers that make Seattle their home.

This week I'll be at Learnapalooza - Seattle's 1.5 Day Conference Code name: Super Hero You! Built by, and for, that community and scheduled for May 2 & 3rd at the amazing Rem Koolhaas designed Seattle Library.
