The Chaos Computer Club (CCC) is the largest hackers association in Europe and has been a mediator in the exciting field of technological and social developments for more than thirty years. The club’s activities range from technical research and explorations at the edge of the tech universe via campaigns, events, policy advice, press releases and publications to providing tools for anonymity and communication The club consists of several decentralised local associations and groups. CCC communicates its positions using diverse publication channels and always seeks to exchange with technologically and socially interested and like-minded people. It also demands and furthers people’s enjoyment of their device, bringing the principles of the hacker ethic to life.
