From the 4th to the 8th of August, I have the luxury of attending the SHA 2017 edition in Flevoland NLD. Together with close to all DATACTIVE people, we are academically swimming in this pool of most interesting topics, people and gatherings. Being at this event comprises of participant observation, and more in-depth exploratory interviews, and of course a healty dosis of talks and tinkering with technology.

About SHA

SHA2017 is an international non-profit outdoor hacker camp/conference taking place in The Netherlands in 2017 on August 4th to 8th. It is the successor of a string of similar events happening every four years: GHP, HEU, HIP, HAL, WTH, HAR and OHM. Similar events are EMF 2016 in the UK, CCC Camp in Germany.

The camp 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.
