The annual hacker conference known as Chaos Communication Congress (C3) is set to kick off tomorrow (27th of December 2014) with 31C3 and run for four days. In previous years it has seen talks from many console hackers, those doing work in related fields and things that are just generally of interest to many 'tempers. Also if you have ever wanted to learn how to hack then many a talk on concepts you might wish to know about happens at conferences like C3. Give or take potential lightning talks there is nothing booked on modern consoles, however a talk on preserving older arcade hardware and bypassing their infamous protections is set to happen. The schedule usually goes by the name "Fahrplan" and you can view it http://events.ccc.de/congress/2014/Fahrplan/ Be aware that the times listed are Hamburg, Germany times (Central European time or UTC+1). This year, in addition to the usual Fahrplan, there are different versions you may prefer to see instead. Videos of most of the talks are streamed live and uploaded quickly to download, and also to youtube. Various hacker/makerspaces and the like will also have streams and may be near you. You can see videos of previous years, and some from other conferences, here. Are there any talks you are planning to watch?
