Yes! I will be at 28C3, which takes place in just under two weeks, from Dec 27-30th, 2011 in Berlin.

There will be Geiger Counter kits for sale in the Hardware Hacking area, and I will be giving several workshops.

If you know me from the blog or just want to learn how to build a geiger counter, come say hello!

More details to come…

PS: Conference streams will be available, see the Fahrplan for scheduled talks, and no nerd left behind means that even if you cannot go to Berlin, there might be an event in your area.

Two weeks to Chaos Camp!

In just two weeks I’ll be pitching my tent at the 2011 Chaos Communications Camp in Finowfurt, Germany, just outside of Berlin.

Chaos Communications Camp is a five day outdoor camp for “hackers and associated life-forms.”  There are talks, workshops, and many opportunities to socialize with fellow hackers, as well as enjoy the paradise that is a summer camp with showers, high-speed internet and AC power to every tent.  (This is definitely my kind of camping!)

Here’s a short video about the last Chaos Camp in 2007, to give you a taste of what it’s all about:

At Camp this year, I’m giving a workshop on building a simple Geiger Counter (more details about this project to come) in the Hardware Hacking Tent on Thursday and Saturday.

PCBs are due Friday, I’m still tweaking the circuit design, there is code to write…  Many last minute preparations. Fun!

If you’re going to Camp, I’ll see you there. If not, there is probably still time to book a flight. 🙂
