Brew-it-yourself mit den coffeenerds

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

(English text follows)

Seidenstraße

Liebe Kaffeeliebhaber,

im letzten Jahr fanden viele von Euch den Weg zu unserer Assembly – den Coffeenerds! Bei uns konntet Ihr Euch Euren einmaligen Kaffee selbst zubereiten!

Wir sind eine Gruppe von Nerds, die ihre Leidenschaft für guten Kaffee teilen und Euch die Möglichkeit geben wollen, in den Genuss einzigartigen Kaffees zu kommen. Nach dem brew-it-yourself-Konzept sollen möglichst viele unterschiedliche Zubereitungsmethoden wie Aeropress und V60 von Euch ausprobiert werden.

Letztes Jahr habt Ihr viel Kaffeebohnen und Equipment gespendet, so dass jeder kostenlos genießen konnte. Vielen Dank dafür! Das soll auch dieses Jahr so sein. Wir werden zwar auch wieder eigenes Equipment mitbringen, hoffen aber trotzdem auf Eure Spenden.
Also bringt Euer Equipment oder Eure Lieblingsbohne mit oder fragt Euren Röster des Vertrauens!

Die Coffeenerds danken Euch im Voraus!

Dear Coffee lovers,

At the last congress a lot of you already found their way to our assembly of the Coffeenerds, where you could brew your own delicious coffee.

We are a group of nerds, that like to share our passion about good coffee and we want to offer as many visitors as possible the taste of unique coffees. Following our brew-it-yourself concept, a lot of brewing methods like Aeropress an V60 can be tried out.

Last year you already donated lots of coffee beans and brewing equipment, so everybody could try and drink for free. Thank you for that! We will bring our own equipment again, but still hope for donations.
So bring your equipment and your beloved beans or just ask your local roaster!

We thank you in advance,
the Coffeenerds

A Respectful Goodbye

for your Beloved Old Hardware

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

.

Do you also have that one piece of hardware,
that you just can’t say goodbye to?

You sadly can’t use it anymore
and it’s been collecting dust for a while,
but you don’t want to just bin it
because it still has some meaning to you?

Bring it to 31C3 for a majestic farewell ceremony!

Whilst mechanically destroying your hardware
you can indulge in memories
and share them with your friends
at 31C3.

Our facility can fit hardware
from the size of a microSD up to a desktop computer.

Things that might break in spectacular ways are especially welcome.

Please don’t leave behind
the remains of your valued hardware,
remember to bring a bag
suited to collect the remainders
so you can dispose of them respectfully.
We don’t have the capacity to take care
of the loved hardware
of all 31C3 visitors.

The 31C3 Wiki is online: Get ready and contribute!

Sunday, September 28th, 2014

Nearly exactly a year back we also went public with the conference website: our wiki, that serves as the main hub for the whole community driven and decentral approach of running the congress. We are using again some semantic forms to gather the various activities provided by all of you. Thanks that we all together make this happen!

So please go ahead and plan your travel and accommodation, check out the FAQ for an overview on all the information provided and you might also wanna have a look at the how-to-survive-guide.

Just like last year, our venue will be the CCH in Hamburg. and it will be filled up again by your awesome projects organized and accessible via your assemblies.

The wiki is always a work in progess, which you can be part of: Sign-up and contribute in various ways by improving its content. You have any addition or you found any error? Don’t hesitate to change them directly! When you come across a locked page or have further questions please contact us, we will do our best to help you.

Assemblies! Please arrive early for set up!

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

TL;DR: Please get to the CCH by 25th/26th with your assembly setup if possible

Beat the crowds and start building your assembly on the 25th! (Day -1). It makes loading so much easier for all of us and gives you time to make sure you have everything you need. Why get stuck in traffic around and inside the building? If you arrive early enough on the 25th, you may even be able to drive right into the unloading hall!

If you’re unloading a vehicle with equipment or other stuff you plan to use at the 30C3, put Tiergartenstraße 2, 20355 Hamburg in your GPS.

Once you’ve arrived, have someone in your group head to the infodesk, who will let you know how to find your assembly. You can reach the infodesk via Eingang C, check there with the Angel or Security Guard inside for further instructions. Please use this entry only for loading and unloading.

Of course, please be sure to bring enough power strips and lamps for your assembly. Be extra neighborly and bring some for others to borrow as well!

This place is already waiting for you.

How to get power at 30C3 – bring ALL your multi-outlet power strips!

Monday, December 16th, 2013

German summary: Unbedingt Mehrfachsteckdosen mitbringen! Ausserdem: Cat5-Kabel, Lampen für Eure Assembly, Telefone, Werkzeug, etc…

Distributing power on 30C3 requires a lot of planning and effort, and of course a truckload of equipment. This year the setup consists of 5 kilometers (km) of CEE compliant three-phase and 8km of 230V/16A power cabling, resulting in a total of 13km of cables needed to distribute power at the venue. To connect all the cables there are also about 100 three-phase distibuters needed, 25 of them being “big” ones with 63 amperes. On top of this power backbone we will have about 800 multi-outlet power strips in place, resulting in approximately 3900 power sockets.

=> So please bring your multi-outlet power strips!

That is very important as the sockets have to supply a lot of equipment on site, and there will be fewer outlets available than needed in busy most areas. So please bring a power strip to connect to the sockets provided on-site so you can share power with other users. If everybody starts charging their devices directly from that single free power outlet, there will not be any sockets left for other users. Also don’t forget to bring CAT5 cables for your laptops please, as there will be none provided!

Especially if you plan to connect several devices, or to set up an assembly you and your group should bring plenty of power strips with you. While you’re at it, please feel free to bring lamps (especially colored ones) and anything else that helps making your assembly a nice place worthwhile. Also you might want to bring your DECT phone or your old GSM mobile with an old SIM card, your soldering station and other devices and tools that might come in handy. If you are uncertain about what to bring or not to bring to the congress, please have at look our “How To Survive” page in the wiki.

For all travellers from abroad, please keep in mind that the German power sockets might be different from the ones you use to have. So don’f forget to bring your adapters.

The Food Hacking Base @30C3

Friday, December 13th, 2013

Greetings to all from Food Hacking Base!

Food Hacking Base

This year we will for the first time open an experimental kitchen and workshop venue dedicated to food & beverage hacking at CCC congress, you are welcome to come and join!
We will function as a food & beverage hub, running a variety of events from cheese tastings, brewing, kimchi making or experimental incubator building, you name it! For more information please check our assembly wiki page.
Please keep in mind that this is about food hacking, so there might be food to eat, but we will not sell any food. But the ingredients and all the equipment to set up a kitchen-place have their costs, so if you want to participate and support the budget of this assembly, you can do so here, many thanks!
Hope to see you all at the 30c3!

Welcome to HHackertours – your provider of sightseeing tours for technical enthusiasts!

Monday, December 9th, 2013

Visiting the 30C3 and wondering what this city it is in has to offer? Try one of our tours! Our goal is to show Hamburg to the visitors of the 30C3 like no other tour guide. We selected fascinating tours showing the behind the scenes of our most fascinating technology related sites.

The first tour we have to offer is a fascinating look behind the scenes of our harbor. For more tours to come check our assembly’s webpage or follow us on twitter.

Container Terminal Tour

The harbor tour “eye to eye with giants” takes you directly onto the container terminals of the second largest harbor in Europe. You will visit CTA (Container Terminal Altenwerder), with semi-automated
container bridges and fully-automated transfer and storage of containers. The on-site container transport is done by fully-automated container transport vehicles. The only drawback is, you have to stay inside the tour bus.

Limited number of available seats. Registration for this tour is open now until Sunday December 15th.
