SHA2017 is a non profit outdoor Hacker camp/conference taking place in The Netherlands from the 4th to 8th of August 2017.
Hackers, free-thinkers, philosophers, activists, geeks, scientists, artists, makers, creative minds and others will convene from all over the world for this meeting to contemplate, reflect, share, discuss, criticise, look ahead, code, build, and more.
It is the successor of a string of similar events happening every four years. These are GHP, HEU, HIP, HAL, WTH, HAR and OHM. Similar events are EMF Camp 2016 in the UK, CCC Camp and congress in Germany. The location is the Scoutinglandgoed in Zeewolde, 55km east of Amsterdam.
The festival is organized for and by volunteers from and around all facets of the international hacker community. Knowledge sharing, technological advancement, experimentation, connecting with your hacker peers and of course hacking are some of the core values of this event.
The SHA2017 organization is starting up, which means that there is more than enough room to join teams and become a crucial part in bringing SHA2017 to life.
The SHA acronym finds its origin in the hashing algorithm SHA (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Hash_Algorithm).
