Hacker Camp Shenzhen 2014 registration open
Registration for Hacker Camp Shenzhen April 3-5, 2014 is now open. Check out the mini-site for news and updates, and grab your tickets here. The first camp is limited to 30 people. Tickets are $285 and will be available until February 28th, but will probably sell out in a few days. A special supporter ticket is also available for $385 if you want to help defray the costs of the event.
We estimate the workshop expenses will total $285 per person. This includes:
- Soldering workshop tuition
- Translation services
- Copies and printed materials
- A few drinks at social events
- Wire fees and other overhead
- A few extras
In the spirit of open source and hacking, you can see exactly where your money goes in the spreadsheet above. It’s not possible to customize the package.
Everyone is donating time to plan, organize and host the event. We will likely operate at a loss. No group or other discounts are possible. However, we will take extra money if you’d like to sponsor the event and help defray costs!
The workshop is a package deal, it’s not possible to pay for only one event. We don’t mind if you want to pay the full cost and attend only the events you like though.
Market tour only
Response to the workshop has been overwhelming. There’s not really any extra room on the market tours, so we ask for a $100 deposit/fee if you’d like to attend the tour only. The fee will be used to buy things during the tour and keep the vendors happy.
Please observe proper market behavior. Cameras are a complication…some of the “better” spots are very dicey about cameras and security guards will come and watch you delete photos from your camera if they catch you. Absolutely no big honking totally unsubtle SLRs. Vendors get really nervous when they have a dozen white guys with cameras crowding around them taking pictures of their iPhone parts.
See you in April!
We’re all looking forward to meeting you in April. Check back for updates, and we’ll have live coverage of the Hacker Camp and Maker Faire from Shenzhen, China.
