Hackaday Is Going To The 36th Chaos Communication Congress

It’s that time of year again here in Germany. The mulled wine flows all night long at the Christmas markets, the Krampus runs wild in the streets, and hackers are perched frantically behind their keyboards and soldering irons, trying to get their last minute projects “finished” for the 36th annual Chaos Communication Congress (36C3) in Leipzig.

We’ll have an assembly for all fans and friends of the Jolly Wrencher, so if you’re coming to Congress, you can come join us or at least stop by and say hi. [Elliot] and [Sven] and a number of Hackaday.io luminaries will be on hand. (Ask us about secret stickers and an as-yet unannounced upcoming Hackaday conference.)

Even if you’re not able to make it, you should keep your eyes on Hackaday from the 27th to the 30th, because we’ll be reporting on the best of Congress. But you don’t have to take our word for it: the Chaos Computer Club makes all of the talks available on livestream during the event, many with simultaneous translation, and final edited versions often appearing just a few hours afterwards.

We’ve looked through the schedule, and it’s going to be a hum-dinger! Gather ’round the glowing box with your friends at your own local hackerspace, or call in sick from work and make yourself some popcorn. This is must-see nerd TV.

Whether you’ve been naughty or nice, swing by our assembly if you’re going to be in Leipzig for the last few days of 2019. See you there!

      1. As Mario said, it’s in the middle of a holiday that everyone has, at least here in Germany. And you have to remember that this all started 36 years ago, back before Christmas was even invented. (I kid, but 36 years is a _long_ tradition.)

        But yeah, horrible timing for people who need to travel far. Even for Germans, it’s tough. Christmas is two days here, with the 26th being the second day. The timing is tight.

    1. Getting a venue for 15.000+ people for a reasonable price is hard. CCC Folks need 2 weeks in advance for buildup too and one for teardown. This very much dictates the date, end of december is off season for fair grounds and so itit on season for chaos!
