BornHack 2024 Kickoff Tuesday, Feb 20th, 2024, 13:01 (CET)

We are again having the BornHack 2024 kickoff at our venue Hylkedam from Wednesday the 8th to Saturday the 11th of May. We hope that a lot of our volunteers will drop by to help shape the 2024 event. It will be a good opportunity for new volunteers to select which teams to participate on, and help get those teams started.

The main kickoff meeting will be on Thursday the 9th of May, we expect people to show up during the morning for meet'n'greet, then we'll have lunch and begin the kickoff. The 10th is for more planning of the years team activities, and extra hanging out/socialising. We plan on leaving the venue on 11th after cleaning. You are welcome to show up in the evening on Wednesday the 8th, but please let someone from Orga know if you plan to do so.

Tentative plan:

Wednesday the 8th of May:

Thursday the 9th of May:

Friday the 10th of May:

Saturday the 11th of May:


You can participate only in the actual kickoff on 9th of May, or you can grab a bed in one of the cabins (or bring a tent) and stay for a couple of nights. Expect the whole thing to be casual, but in particular the evening of the 9th and all of the 10th will have plenty of social and relaxation time.

Participating in the kickoff is free, but it is appreciated if you can chip in around 100,- DKK/HAX (around 14€) for food per day. We will do our best to make the kickoff available virtually, but the internet connection at Hylkedam is not very good between BornHacks, so no promises.

See you! Or follow the live-stream at http://xgsobitduxv7gcc5qlveigwiku7qcjn5exf4ayusw4mwq7kfrapmrjyd.onion/ or

Village Registration Open! Monday, Feb 19th, 2024, 15:00 (CET)

It is now possible to register your BornHack 2024 village!

Registering your village is an excellent way to make sure people can find you, advertise your interests, and attract new people to the village.

Villages are clusters of tents typically built by a group of friends, a hackerspace, a group with a shared interest (like the best programming language in the world, or the niche operating system you run that everybody else should switch to ASAP, and so on.) It is not a requirement to stay in a village when you place your tent at BornHack, but it can be an excellent way to meet new people.

You can see a list of villages from BornHack 2023 here.

Remember that our Code of Conduct applies to village names and descriptions.

You can register your village here.

As some of you have already noticed, the webshop is now open for tickets for BornHack 2024!

The usual ticket types are available: full-week tickets for adults and children, one-day tickets, caravan tickets, car park tickets, and cabins. Tents, fridges, and other village gear are unavailable and will be announced later.

BornHack 2024: Call for Participation Sunday, Jan 7th, 2024, 15:39 (CET)

The BornHack 2024 Call for Participation is open!

We are looking for talented, humorous, inspiring, and/or provocative speakers to host talks, workshops, and other events to make the official program at BornHack 2024 live up to the high expectations set by previous years. If you have something interesting to say, we want to hear it! Read our Call for Participation to learn more and submit your content today.

We prefer submissions as early as possible to have more time to plan the final program and coordinate with speakers. Please submit it sooner rather than later.

Please note that BornHack now takes place in July rather than August, as it has in recent years.
