Open Community Camp 2008, 10-17 August 2008

Learn and play with empowering technologies.

A wonderfull week of camping gaining and sharing knowledge.

The Wifisoft Foundation organizes Open Community Camp 2008. A week of camping, hacking and social gatherings in the Netherlands - roughly between Amsterdam and the Hague, near Schiphol aiport and the town of Leiden at an easily reached outdoor site.

Following the succesful events in WCC2006(photos) and WCC2007(photos) which where relatively WiFi? oriented, we are now opening up to a broader audience.

We're offering a camp site (with an indoor area), power, a solid internet feed, lots of wifi, electricity and, with your helping hands, basic breakfast, meals and barbecues. Depending on the number of groups and logistics we'll also help to make sure there are additional large tents, chairs and tables. From thereon - it is entirely up to you to make things interesting.

We've got some 10 confirmed talks and speakers already; on a wide range of topics - from Drupal to Routing to OLPC to ZFS.

And of course - there will be a boat trip again through the lakes and canals which surround Leiden.

Hear more (in Dutch).

We would like to camp with your friends and spent your time to:

  • opensource software,
  • opensource hardware
  • opensource content
  • electronics,
