Phew, I finally found some time to do a proper writeup of the 29c3.
The 29c3 is a conference organized by the Chaos Computer Club with tons of great lectures and workshops. This year the conference moved to Hamburg after years of being in Berlin. And it totally worked. Over 6.000 people visited the conference and it never felt crowded. You always found a table to hack on or a place in the conference rooms to watch the lectures. Even for the very popular lectures. I loved it. You can already count me in for the next one!
Luckily the FEM captured all talks. If you missed the conference, you can watch all talks online. Sadly (or luckily, depending on the english skills of the person giving the talk ) some of the talks are in German.
Here is my list of talks you should not miss:
And now to the german ones:
All talks can be downloaded on several mirrors. Here is one.
