It is that time of the year again – 33C3 is approaching and the Chaosmentors are getting ready to support new visitors during their first Congress experience.
For those who visit the Congress for the first time:
You always wanted to visit Chaos Communication Congress but worry about getting the best out of the experience? You are interested in computers, technology, hacking, privacy, free speech and perhaps just need pointing in the right direction?
We are the „Chaospatinnen“ (chaos mentors) and we welcome you to the Chaos Communication Congress. We encourage you to participate in 33C3 this year and we will do our upmost to help you to have an exciting, enjoyable and most of all memorable congress. As a „Chaospatenkind“ (chaos mentee) you’ll have a mentor and a group that suits you. Mentors are available in advance of the congress for your questions, welcome you on the first day and explore congress with you. Together, we will find talks and workshops that interest you as well as answer any questions or concerns ahead of congress.
How does it work?
Signup by the 10th December by emailing us with a little about yourself to our email-address chaospatinnen at lists dot ccc dot de. Please write to us as early as possible and tell us what you are interested in and why you want to come to the Congress for the first time. With this information, we can find you a suitable mentor, who will then contact you before congress.
Why do we do this?
We have always had a great time at the Congress for 1, 2, 10 or 30 years. But we know from our own experience how difficult the first step can be. However, once the first step is taken, great people, knowledge and unforgettable experiences await you. But it’s not only you who will learn something new, it’s also important for the existing community to open doors to new people and perspectives year after year. Many of the Chaospatinnen took this first step just like you are about to – So what are you waiting for? Get in touch!
Of course, we are also looking forward to the support of friendly, experienced and reliable mentors. If you are interested in welcoming a group of new comers and taking care of them, please contact us by e-mail at chaospatinnen at listspunkt ccc punkt de.
Just tell us what you are looking for and we will be in touch.
Thanks in advance!
