Dieses Jahr ist wieder ein Haxogreen Jahr! Ich lasse den call for participation mal hier liegen, vielleicht sieht man sich ja da.
After over 140 excited campers in 2012, the long awaited fourth iteration of HaxoGreen, in its 2014 edition is finally here! Hackerspace-folks from all over Europe and beyond will meet for an informal exchange of knowledge on this 4-day outdoors summer-camp.
Still cosy at a maximum of 140 people, still at the same perfect setting that offers commodities for shopping, outdoors for camping and areas filled to the brink with adventure and history at the same time. The camp will take place from Thursday, July 31st till Sunday, August 3rd and be bristling with geeks and their innovative ideas.
Talks, workshops, music, fresh food and most of all very interesting people make this an event that is not to be missed.
Whether you’re hacking on your project, looking for new and exciting ideas or just craving to share 3 midsummer nights outdoors, socialising with other hackers, artists and geeks, HaxoGreen is the place to be. No need to be a 1337 H4X0r, we welcome all inquisitive people from around the globe.
The camp is organized by syn2cat a.s.b.l., the association that brought you the luxembourgian hackerspace. We appreciate your participation, be it by holding a lecture, tutoring a workshop or presenting your projects and ideas during a 10 min lightning talk.
The camp is located at the scouts’ grounds near the city of Dudelange in the southern region of Luxembourg. The camping ground features adequate restrooms and shower facilities. Indoor room for lectures and workshops is available. The nearby town of Dudelange, near the borders to France and Germany, offers access to shops and markets for all of your grocery needs.
