### What is Hacker Summer Camp?
It's the time period each summer when, usually in the before times, many Information Security / Cyber Security / Hacker Conferences occur in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. As a result many people spend the whole week in Las Vegas in the summer learning (and often partying) which has earned it the nickname "hacker summer camp".

This year it is hybrid, which expands it so many more people can attend! If the cost of travel or vias is usually prohibitive - this is your chance!

### What is Birds of a Feather

We are trying to gather a list of as many resources, events and programs as possible occuring at summer camp and provide links to them to help you create the best time for you. We will try and tag the events with who the event or resource is aimed at, who is welcome, who is discouraged, so you can flock together with other birds like you.
