About this event

UC Berkeley School of Information's InfoCamp is a premier student-run event that aims to reimagine information technology. In its 11th year, inspired by living through a unique time in history, InfoCamp will feature an idea-thon and a speaker series. This year’s theme is “The New Normal”. We will examine opportunities and risks introduced by the virtual space, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In this 2-day event, you and your team will tackle challenges related to virtual learning - specific challenge details will be provided during the event by Atlassian. Each team (3-4 people) can choose to compete in one of two tracks:

  • Engineering / Data Science: Build a coded proof of concept or a data model
  • Product: Create an interactive design prototype

The top two teams for each track will walk home with :

  • Winner: $400 per team and a swag bag
  • Runner up: $200 per team and a swag bag

This event is FREE and open to anyone interested in information and technology! You can register as a team or individually. We will place individual registrants into teams and you will be notified shortly before the event. You can also register if you're interested in tuning in to our speaker sessions but do not wish to compete.

Come learn, network, and be inspired! Check out our website for more details!
