That’s just an overview. See the full Hacker Camp Shenzhen schedule here. You can expect nightly dinners and parties all week. If you want to come really early, we’re hacking Phuket from the 15th to the 19th.
Based on a survey of the first hacker camp we’ve tweaked the morning talks. Three days of talks was just too much. We reduced it to 2 days, and will dish out bite size bits of info in rapid succession. Sleep in after Friday’s party and finish the reballing course refreshed!
Tickets for the first camp were priced so we could break even. That didn’t happen… The price has increased now that we have some experience planning the event.
We still want everyone to have a chance to be involved so there’s three classes of tickets. We’ll trust you to make the right choice. You’re at our mercy in China after all!
- Student/starving artist – $350
- Normal ticket – $400
- Sponsor – $500
There’s only 25 tickets available and we expect they will sell out fast. Or maybe it’ll be a small intimate group. Who knows! We’re excited to see you there!
