What happens when you take geeks outdoors? David Hulton shared the history of hacker camps at Ignite 24.
“This talk covers the brief history of Hacker Camps, why the community they create is so special and unique compared to other tech conferences, and share a little bit about the US hacker camp, ToorCamp, that happens every 2 years in Seattle’s back yard.”
Since the late 90′s David Hulton has been organizing the ToorCon line of hacker conferences ranging from events at convention centers, night clubs, beach resorts, missile silos, and recently Antarctica. He also co-owns and baristas at Ada’s Technical Books & Cafe and in his full time breaks unbreakable crypto with FPGAs.
