Hardware Hacking Area The Hardware Hacking Area is a large area with tables and chairs and tools for people of all ages and skill levels to come together and play, teach, learn, and share in making all sorts of physical things. We do lots of soldering and teach people how to build things. We have a large number of workshops for everyone throughout the camp. We often have 2 or 3 workshops running at the same time, and we have a very large number of soldering irons, well-lit working spaces, and seating for 96 current and aspiring hardware hackers. The Hardware Hacking Area was known as Belgian Embassy at previous events.
