Hacker Camp Shenzhen volume 4: “182 degrees” is on! Join us from Thursday April 1 to Saturday April 3, 2015 for fun, food and 3 solid days of electronics tours in Shenzhen China and beyond.
Tickets are available now. Come to the world’s electronics capital and experience Shenzhen like a local hacker. Tour the famous Huaqiangbei electronics markets with people who live in the neighborhood, figure out what to eat and how to get around.
This camp we’re adding an oft requested factory tour! Take our own party bus to a few factories around Shenzhen. Exact factory visits will be determined by you! We’ll take requests and try to include something for everyone.
Saturday we’ll explore electronics and tools markets most foreigners could never find: Yihua and the massive Shajing.

That’s just an overview. See the full Hacker Camp Shenzhen schedule here. You can expect nightly dinners and parties all week. Be sure to give yourself a few days to explore the market on your own after the camp!
Tickets for the camp cover bus rental, materials, meeting room, a translator, a set of PCBs, and 3 bottles of Tsing Tao (Ching Dao) per dinner. There’s only 20 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!
- Student/Starving Artist ticket – $250
- Normal ticket – $300
- Supporter ticket – $400 (your name on the site and schedule of every future camp)
We also include allowance for Paypal fees, wire transfer fees, and currency conversion. Hacker Camp Shenzhen is a “no profit” event, meaning we’re lucky to break even.
Where to stay, visas, how to get there
City Inn is the recommended hotel, but be prepared for really bad internet and no WIFI. Check out the Hacker Camp mini-site and our Shenzhen survival guide. Be sure to get WeChat and join the Shenzhen Hacker group chat after you buy a ticket!
SIM card provided
We’re traveling to places an hour or so north of Shenzhen, there are no taxis and nobody speaks English. Everyone must have a working SIM card with data, and this camp we’ll provide them!
