Lots of fun was had, but alas, ToorCamp is now over. Thanks so much for coming out and bringing all of the awesomeness! It’s still hard to think about all of the great memories that were made and we’re extremely grateful for the top notch speakers, inventors, campsite organizers, and attendees that made it out. We couldn’t have put this together without all of your support!
If you have any pictures or videos of the camp, please post them on the ToorCamp google group forum. There’s also some great GoPro videos that Dragos posted of flying over the camp and of the Titanium Chef competition. Also be sure to check out the videos coming out from Hak5 like this one.
It’s just a few days until ToorCamp and setup is just about to begin! If you have just decided you want to come out last minute, no worries, we’ll have registration up for a little longer and you can always register on-site for $300. Otherwise, here’s a few things to remember about coming out to ToorCamp!
|The drive from Seattle takes around 4 hours. If you plan on taking a ferry, make sure to check the wait times as during rush our they can get backed up and it may be faster to drive around the sound.|
|Although Marijuana is legal in Washington State, it is not on Makah Tribal Land where ToorCamp is being held. The Makah law also prohibits alcohol and illegal drugs as well. Please also make sure to obey all posted speed limits when you’re on the reservation as the roads are patrolled frequently and the locals would appreciate it.|
|So far the weather forecast looks great, extremely low chance of rain and high of ~65, low of ~53 and winds up to 14 MPH. Weather can be unpredictable there though so pack for the unexpected.|
|Make sure to bring a LAND LINE TELEPHONE and an UNLOCKED GSM PHONE so you can use the awesome network that the ShadyTel crew is putting together for us.|
|Ada’s Technical Books & Cafe will be operating a pop-up shop/cafe at the camp with espresso and snacks and there’s restaurants within a 5 minute drive into town so remember to bring some cash.|
|If you’re participating in any of the Contests or Workshops double check if there’s any equipment you need to bring.|
That’s all for now! We’re really looking forward to seeing all of you and all of the awesome projects and ideas you’re bringing out to share. See you in a few days!
We’ve got some great contests running at ToorCamp this year. Titanium Chef returns, matching the wits of hacker chefs against each other and is sure to create some amazing results. Also, new to ToorCamp, we have MashQuatch, a mash-up competition that will span July 9th-11th. Sign-up today and help make ToorCamp history!
There’s many great workshops going on at ToorCamp this year, but most have limited attendance. To reserve your spot in a workshop, make sure to register for it ahead of time! Most workshops are free but some require a fee to help cover materials so make sure to paypal your instructor with the fee to confirm your reservation. For workshops that don’t sell out we’ll also be processing sign-ups at the info desk at the camp, but it’s highly encouraged to sign up ahead of time.
In case you haven’t made up your mind on whether or not to come to ToorCamp, we want to help you make your decision. Here’s some articles about the last event to check out!
“Welcome to ToorCamp, a five-day retreat where some of America’s most elite hackers, technologists and DIY deviants escape civilization in order to rebuild it from scratch, leapfrogging the pedestrian present directly into a postapocalyptic science fiction future.”
“filled with a sense of disbelief that it’s over, a giddy excitement as I scheme ways to apply what I’ve learned, and the definite intention to be first ticket holder on the list for next year’s ToorCamp event.”
Ada’s Technical Books & Cafe in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle is now selling ToorCamp tickets! Buy your ticket in person with a Credit Card, Cash, Check, or even Bitcoin and get a free beverage with your purchase. Tickets are $240 until June 30th so hurry up and get your ticket before time runs out!
