Come join us for a decentralized congress experience! We want to create a space to get together, hack and make awesome stuff.

The wat?

DECO is an event that takes place because no Chaos Communication Congress is taking place this year. It is not the same as “the congress”… but we want to take this opportunity to invite people to the Munich Maker Lab and get at least a small part of the experience.


DECO is hosted inside the Munich Maker Lab e.V. located on the Kreativquartier, just a few meters from the tram stop Leonrodplatz.

What can I expect?

There is no strict program, but we will be open daily from around 10 am until at least 10 pm. The following is confirmed:

  • We will show streams from other maker- and hackerspaces participating in the decentralized congress
  • Thanks to the Eventphone team, we can offer DECT – so you can stay in touch with participating maker- and hackerspaces
  • We do indeed have Internet, Power and drinks!
  • And we also have a wide variety of machines that you can use – 3d printers, a laser cutter, soldering irons, sewing machines, powertools and so on… 😉

The schedule is not final and will be updated!
