Get your 36c3 ticket NOW!

It’s that time of the year again! The 36th Chaos Communication Congress (36c3) is coming to Leipzig in Germany. From December 27 to December 30 my hometown will hold the yearly convention of the Chaos Communication Club. It’s the largest hacker conference in Europe and also covers topics like politics, science, making and art.

Vouchers for receiving a ticket through any CCC-related community are being distributed right now. Reach out immediately to your nearest CCC Erfa, hackerspace or similar community to get a ticket smoothly! For the more adventurous there will be public presales on November 8, November 10, November 21. Although the queuing system is sophisticated these are usually sold out in seconds.

I will voluntarily register an assembly for us to have an area dedicated to Perl and Raku (Perl[56] more recently). This serves as a home for ourselves and proved to be an excellent way to get into touch with people. Bring various stickers to attract more of them! Also, for estimating the right number of seats and proving relevance I need to know how many of us will be going to 36c3. So please tell me if you're going in the comments or via e-mail!

Are you looking for an accommodation in Leipzig? Please contact me! I have hints and even rooms to offer.

Congress is a great event and a chance to meet many interesting people. See you at 36c3!

In German:

Es geht wieder los: Der 36. Chaos Communication Congress kommt nach Leipzig. Vom 27. bis 30. Dezember findet in meiner Heimatstadt der jährliche Congress des Chaos Computer Clubs statt. Das ist die größte Hacker-Konferenz Europas, auf der auch Themen wie Politik, Wissenschaft, die Maker-Szene und Kunst verhandelt werden.

Die Vouchers, mit denen Leute aus CCC-nahen Strukturen ein Ticket bekommen können, werden jetzt gerade verteilt. Also wende dich umgehend an deinen nächsten CCC-Erfa, Hackerspace, o.ä., um entspannt ein Ticket zu bekommen. Für Abenteuerlustige gibt es am 8., 10. und 21. November den Vorverkauf. Obwohl der Shop ein ausgereiftes Warteschlangensystem hat, ist der Vorverkauf jeweils binnen Sekunden ausverkauft.

Ich kümmere mich wieder um die Registrierung einer Assembly, um eine Fläche speziell für Perl und Raku (bisher Perl[56]) zu schaffen. Diese dient uns als Basislager und es hat sich gezeigt, dass man dort großartig neue Leute ansprechen kann. Bringt dafür noch viele verschiedene Aufkleber mit! Um die richtige Menge an Plätzen abzuschätzen und unserer Assembly Relevanz zu verschaffen, muss ich wissen, wie viele von uns dorthin fahren. Also schreib mir bitte, wenn du fährst, in den Kommentaren oder via E-Mail.

Suchst du eine Unterkunft in Leipzig? Bitte schreib mir! Ich kann dir Tipps geben und habe Zimmer in Leipzig zu vergeben.

Der Congress ist eine sehr gute Veranstaltung und die Chance, eine Menge interessante Leute zu treffen. Bis bald auf dem 36c3!

Übrigens gibt es auf YouTube meinen Kurzvortrag über den Congress vom Deutschen Perl-Workshop im Frühjahr.

The recordings from the German Perl Workshop in the beginning of March are now—less than two months later—online on YouTube:.

Obviously most of the talks are in German but you can find some in English, too.

Special thanks to Lee Johnson (LEEJO) who took care of the recording!

See you next year at 36c3!

Visitors of the 35th Chaos Communication Congress had a great time between Christmas and new year's eve and you're invited to be part of it next year at the 36th congress. As everybody seems to be pleased with the venue it will probably be from December 27th to 30th again in Leipzig, Germany.

We were half a dozen Perl folks just saying hello at the assembly or making our space their home over all four days. Also there were many visitors who shared their past ex…

Perl[56] on the 35c3

Between Christmas and new year (Dec 27-30) Leipzig, Germany will hold the largest hacker conference in Europe: the 35th Chaos Communication Congress. Do you consider going to 35c3?

Tickets are sold only in presale. Phase I is reserved to inhabitants of the CCC universe (this doesn't require membership to any organization–CCC e.V. [registered society] members only get a lower price) and in phase II anyone has a chance to get a ticket in the ticket shop.

Last year at the 34c3 I met some Perl people by chance and we agreed to meet this year again and to form an assembly (explanation and list of them from last year). Those are areas shaped by a special interest groups and can be anything from a simple desk up to buildings in the exhibition hall. Do we want to form an assembly (probably a pair of desks for a start)?

Why I am writing this blog post:

  • If you need a ticket and don't know the presale process, please contact me to make sure you do all you can to get a ticket! The /\d+C3/s are popular and because is space is limited not everyone can get a ticket.

  • I'd like to register an assembly and need to gather a list of people who want to participate. It's great to have a desk where you feel home and we can (don't need to) bring Perl merchandise or decorate it.

  • If you're going to visit 35c3, I can probably recommend accommodation or maybe even connect you to people that offer a sofa for free/low price.

You can reach me via e-mail at or write to our small group at If you decide to go, you might leave a comment here for everyone to see. I look forward to seeing a lot of Perl at the 35c3!
