Camp registrations are strictly limited, with a maximum number of 100 places available.  Workshop numbers will also be capped.

Tech Camp pre-registrations are NOW OPEN. Pre-registration is offered early to support allocation of budgets this calendar year (priority workshop selection will be available to pre-registrants in the new year). This event sold out in 2017, so those wishing to attend are encouraged to register early. (Please note there is no early bird period.)
