I’ve set up a small workshop / meetup on boat electronics hacking at 33c3 this year.
33c3 is the 33rd yearly congress for the Chaos Computer Club and collects around 5000 awesome people in a big conference centre in Hamburg.
I’ll do a small presentation on NMEA0183, NMEA2000, some signalk, perhaps a bit why this matters when racing sail boats, and why I’m frustrated with the state of boat electronics. I’ll demo some of the progress I’ve made, what I’m doing next and then try to get some discussion going.
My plan is to bring a small NMEA2000 lab setup, with a marine display and some canbus units. Most likely this will be at the Hackeriet assembly, and you’re invited to come and play with it.
If you’re on CCC, come by and say hello!
