I popped over to check out day 0 at the Berlin Convention Center and everything is getting set up for the launch of the twenty-fourth Chaos Communication Congress. Every year for the past 24 years, hackers have gathered to have congress with the Chaos Computer Club to discuss and hear about the latest issues, challenges, and advancements in the hacking world. Plus partake of Club Mate, the refreshing and invigorating hacker beverage of choice. This conference is the place to be between xmas and new years. With their added category for presentations on making and steampunk theme, it’s going to be awesome.
