The Fab Camp is inspired by the FOO Camps organised by O’Reilly Media and based around the concept of an ‘unconference’ with content suggested and featured on the day. On the registration site, if you are a member of the public registering for the weekend, you will be asked to register for either the Saturday, Sunday or the weekend. They are currently titled ‘Machines that Make Machines’ or “Open Design”, although there could be an opportunity to engage in other adhoc and spontaneous workshops on the day. This is an experimental format, but is semi-structured due to the difference between making and talking about a subject. Please be open to changes or evolution in the program, due to it’s nature. With some of the most talented fabbers and makers from all over the globe, it is sure to be an engaging and enjoyable experience. If you are a member of the public applying for the fab camp, then you should mindful of the skill set that will be required to meaningfully engage in the workshops, and should not apply if you are not familiar with the content of the conference or the maker movement in general.
