Hacker Camp Shenzhen isn’t just about cool markets and amazing soldering techniques, we made food a centerpiece too! Day 1 dinner: Hot pot. Here is the hot pot crew in action! 30 hackers joined us at our favorite hot pot place.

This hot pot restaurant is probably the most popular one in the neighborhood. Five people sit around a charcoal-fired pot filled with boiling broth. Plates of meat and vegetables are delivered all night – just toss in your favorites for a quick boil and eat. Optionally, blend your own dipping sauce at the sauce bar.


Lots of lamb, lots of Tsing Tao, lots of laughter.


The street is still pretty wet, but that didn’t stop us from having fun. People walking by stopped to take photos of all these foreigners.


This restaurant is so popular that it won’t take reservations. So, we came here to eat almost 5 times a week for a month to persuade the owners to rent us the sidewalk for the night.

After lots of begging, one of the owners finally said yes. Frankly speaking, it was only 4 days before the workshop that we sealed the deal.


This is the spicy hot pot team, Gus and Nik are just about to pose, Ian and Akiba are already in full FACE FRAME!
