The Chaos Computer Club (CCC) is Europe's largest hacker association, founded in 1981 by German hackers.
Our head office is located at the residence of CCC Hamburg.
We have a presence in Austria, Germany and Switzerland as well as an EU delegation in Brussels.
Many of our regional subsidiaries run their own hackerspaces, which we call Erfa-Kreise (experience sharing circles).
These regional subsidiaries are mostly independent and cooperate in a lively community which meets on CCC-organized events.
We hold some of the largest hacker conferences in the world, which are almost entirely volunteer-run.
Recordings from these conferences are available through media.ccc.de, our independent video distribution service.
Teams such as our C3VOC video crew provide professional support to many open-source events in Germany and neighboring countries.
