Great if you're willing to participate by helping us out!
SHA2017, in the tradition of the four-yearly hackers festivals, is entirely run by volunteers who pay for their tickets like every other visitor. Some of us are working on organising the event months, years in advance.
During the event we need many hands; info will follow. If you're willing to help organising, you'd best look at the Orga wiki and look for a team you think would suit you. Contact them throught their mailing list and offer your help.
