UCC Camp 2019

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 RTX2080Ti's 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 page is currently being maintained by [FVP] & [MPT]. Contact us if you have any questions.

This is an 18+ event, ID required. Drink responsibly. Don't drink and drive.
