Greetings to all from 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!
PS: Don’t forget to bring some cheeses & related condiments and microbial cultures …
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.
Dear fellow coffee lover,
a small group of nerds will for the first time set up an assembly on coffee at the 30C3.
At the moment the group is fairly small: If you’re dedicated to excellent coffee, please join us. We appreciate nice-looking coffee machines, geekz with their own favorite method of pouring coffee, or anything else related to coffee you have lying around.
One project in our assembly will be a bean exchange: Bring your favorite beans, sort them according to their taste, and take beans others brought home with you – obviously not without tasting them before. If you want to participate, don’t forget to bring some bags of your favorite beans.
If you want to spend time on hanging out and sipping excellent coffee, don’t hesitate to join our assembly.
If you have further ideas for workshops or projects, please tell us about them. The vision of our assembly is trying out different kinds of brewing coffee, with the overall goal to extract the full body of taste of your favorite bean. Or convince your fellow coffee nerds that there is a bean with a better taste around.
Explicit disclaimer: We do not provide the service of producing coffee for all hackers, but similar to other assemblies we’re nerds in this area, rather than being service-oriented. For those who need some warm caffeine to wake up, please go to the caterer instead.
An assembly is your place at 30C3, the /home of a group of people belonging together, hackers who like to work and hang out. At bcc we had such groups around projects, but last year we invented the concept of assemblies as an experiment, that worked out great!

You find background on the idea of assemblies in last years blogpost on this topic. In sum it is like the villages in the camp: Bring your toys and tools, show your projects and work on them, and just have fun – and let others participate in what you’re doing! Write a nice wikipage on your assembly, give information about your group, the reason why you belong together and which projects you are working on. Very important are the informations about self-organized-sessions you plan to provide at your assembly or in one of the workshop rooms, as those show how you want to be part of the idea to bring people together to share knowledge and develop new ideas. The “Free Text” field in the assembly form will be the body of the page, you can use normal wiki syntax there, write text, add pictures, provide links and so on.

Assemblies are also very much invited to decorate their spot on the Congress, as long as everything you bring does not block exit paths and is not inflammable. Please specify those in the field “things we bring” or contact the orga directly if you are not sure. Also please specify what kind of location you would like to sit in: Please have a look at the newly invented field “specification”. The more information you give us on your preferred seating, the better we can look for a suitable place for you. The building will be used in a different way this year, so often an entry like “same place as last year” won’t work, but you can always add what you liked/disliked from last years spot, as any information helps.

Keep in mind that the size of the building is not infinite – so please just apply for as many seats as you really need (this is usually not more than 1/3 of the number of people wanting to attend). Please make sure that you get your entry submitted until next Sunday (December 1st), as we need to start to plan the seating then.
Looking forward to have you there!
