One of the security world’s most
venerable conferences, the Chaos Communications Congress (CCC) is an annual
gathering for hackers sponsored by the Chaos Computer Club. First held in 1984,
the event now draws thousands of hackers, intellectuals, academics and Utopians
to snowy Berlin in late December for lectures and workshops on issues related
to computer security and privacy, as well as the political and policy implications
of technology. Somewhere between DEFCON, Burning Man and a lecture at Harvard’s Berkman Center, CCC is a must-attend event.
