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, accommodation, and great company is guaranteed! Be prepared for a weekend of tech experimentation, a programming competition, 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, learn in a chilled out environment and network.

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

Attendee consent forms will be made available to fill out closer to the date of camp. Please check back here.
