There's been talk for far too long about a hacker camp in the UK; let's make it happen. Europe has a great history of camps: Hacking At Random 2009. Chaos Communication Camp 2011.

Let's have one in the UK. Sod the Olympics, let's make this the event of 2012.

*Very* Provisional Plans

  • Date: Saturday 25th - Monday 27th August 2012 (Bank Holiday Weekend)
  • Capacity: 500 people
