Are you up to building electric vehicles, programming an Arduino, or tinker with LEDs, Wi-Fi, robots and such? And do you enjoy having other like minded people in your vicinity? Then claim a spot for your tent on the brand new HackZone field at CampZone to be as close to all of this as possible, because HackZone is the place to be at CampZone to go crazy with all sorts of hacking, soldering, and programming!

No experience? No problem! HackZone allows for professionals, beginners and anyone in between. As long as there are bits and bytes flowing through your body, HackZone is the place to be. Workshops, presentations, activities and hacker-challenges such as a Capture the Flag (CTF) are organized to make sure that you will be up to speed with all kinds of new and interesting possibilities, and you can learn about robotics, soldering, security and much more!

HackZone has laser cutters, 3D-printers, welding station (MIG), soldering stations, robots and a lot of friendly faces. You can work on your own project, join workshops and attend presentations.

Whether you’re on the field with your tent, or just dropping by: everybody is welcome.

Cool stuff to do

The HackZone event badge

Volunteers of HackZone have spent more hours than ever to get you the coolest event badge we’ve made so far. This year’s badge features a dual-core ESP32 microcontroller with WiFi and Bluetooth, and has a full-color pixel-addressable 8×32 led display. That’s 256 individual RGB LEDs! That’s why for the first time ever, we’re having the boards pre-assembled in China this year. Of course you can still practise your soldering skills by soldering on a battery holder yourself. This badge runs on the famous firmware, which means you can write your own amazing apps for it in Python. Cool! Sponsored by Deloitte, AllNet, and Espressif, we’re extremely happy to let you know that the first 500 full event visitors can now get a badge completely free!


Capture The Flag (CTF) compo

Deloitte has designed a special CTF for CampZone. In this CTF you can show off your 1337 hacking skills by beating challenges in both software and hardware.

Winners will win some cool prizes and eternal fame as 31337 h4x0r5 at CampZone!



Keeping up with a super fun tradition, also this year you will be able to flood our CampZone fibre with pixel packets! During this full-event game Pixelflood you can transmit special packets which allow you to change one pixel on a big screen. All participants are fighting for the same screen real estate trying to push their picture, gif, video or even stream a game on the same screen.

Using some clever tricks, or just plain violence. Can you hog the 100Gb connection of the server? 😉

Want to do a talk on software/hardware hacking or security?

Let us know! You can reach out to us on the #hackzone channel on Discord.


HackZone is for anyone who enjoys DIY, tinkering, soldering, and/or programming. On this special you will see field robots, electrical transportation, blinking LEDs and all sort of other crazy things being build. Just because we can.

Interested? Then please drop by!

Anyone can put a tent on the HackZone field or rent an army tent. Please be aware that this field will be primarily used by the kind of visitor that enjoys to make cool or even crazy things. If you don’t want to be placed next to a buzzing motor or a welding machine, then you’re better off on a different field.
