SHA2017 is a non profit outdoor Hacker camp 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. 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.

Talk Highlight: Resisting Algorithms of Mass Destruction

Today we highlight the talk from Lyndsey Jackson and her talk about Resisting Algorithms of Mass Destruction.

In 2016, Centrelink started using the data from the Australian Taxation Office to see if welfare recipients had overpayments or ‘debt.They are doing this automated, where human oversight is reduced.


Answer to THE question: What is the amount of tickets sold?

One of the most asked questions of SHA2017 up until now is the amount of tickets that is sold. Historically, this data was not widely distributed.  The number of tickets sold at HIP/HAL/WTH/HAR/OHM/SHA was either completely unknown, guesstimated, kept secret or lost.

But with a new board comes the opportunity to do things differently. One of those things is to share the amount of ticket sold. And that will start today.


ALTPWR: the microgrid project

Decentralisation is a hacker value. So, without diminishing any value of the great work Team:Power is putting into the power infrastructure at SHA2017, some entrepreneurial spirits took it onto themselves to start tinkering with an alternative power infrastructure. This allows for decentralised power generation at SHA2017.
