Inside Dev (Jan 2nd, 2018)

The Chaos Communication Congress is a fantastic event every year, and I binge watch it like crazy this time of year. A few select talks: Regulating Autonomous Weapons; Designing PCBs with Code; BBSes and early internet access in the nineties. You could also go watch last year’s talks, as these things are evergreen. Trivial prediction: somewhere in this year’s talks, someone pwns some ATMs. This is the 34C3 playlist for the ongoing conference. There are also livestreams!

I learned things :)
