Welcome to HackCamp: an immersive experience where a collective of inspired minds unite to learn, connect, and create. During this two-day adventure, you will have the chance to meet with industry-level professionals, attend a variety of design, development, and entrepreneurial workshops, and collaborate alongside a team of fellow hackers to craft and pitch your unique project. At nwPlus, we strive for inclusivity, diversity, and accessibility at the core of our community; no matter your background, skill set, or story, we are ecstatic to learn more about you, your vision, and the ideas you offer to build and grow the world we share. This is your great unknown — explore the resources at your fingertips, advance through new frontiers, and make your own mark in this vast cosmos of possibility.
