We here at Disobey wish to encourage hacker culture, and bring together like minded individuals at a gathering to share information and to train the skills our adversaries use against us. Our goal is to foster a vibrant community of creators, makers and breakers.  

We value encouragement, creativity and sharing and believe everyone can teach us something about the world. 


Cool, join us and get involved. 

Hack things, Break shit, Do stuff! 




Why disobey?

Take control of your choices without fear.
Create, shape or modify to improve what's here.
Find your own path and encourage others to find theirs.

The Hackers Creed

(Adapted from, Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution, Steven Levy, 1984)

  1. You can create art and beauty on a computer.
  2. Access to computers - and anything which might teach you something about the way the world works - should be unlimited and total. Always yield to the Hands-On imperative!
  3. All information should be free.
  4. Mistrust authority - promote decentralization.
  5. Hackers should be judged by their hacking, not bogus criteria such as degrees, age, race, gender or position.
  6. Computers can change your life for the better.

Code of Ethics

  1. Respect privacy
  2. Serve and protect the community
  3. Share knowledge with the community
  4. Act with integrity
  5. Avoid conflicts of interest
  6. Avoid FUD (Fear Uncertainty and Doubt)
  7. Protect everyones data (encryption etc.)

Everything is broken, nothing is secure.
