What is Camp?

Let's put a whole heap of computer nerds in one place for a weekend and see what happens! Internet is limited but will be available, however food, accomodation, and great company is guaranteed! Be prepared for a weekend-long LAN, programming competitions, tech talks and even a campfire! Bring your favourite ethernet cables, soldering iron and spare GTX1080s and be prepared to have fun. Besides that, it's just a great opportunity to meet some like-minded people and network.

This is an 18+ event, remember to bring your ID. Drink responsibly. Don't drink and drive.

Consent forms can be found here
