Most regular readers of our website, without a doubt, know about Campus Party. But for those who hear about it for the first time, Campus Party — is one of the world’s biggest Lan Parties, which is most famous because its participants don’t only bring their computers to it (this is normal for any true lan party), but also live in tents during the course of the lan party, which are placed in the same room as their computers. The Campus Party event takes place annually in various parts pf the world, e.g. Europe, South America, etc. Aside from the regular lan party stuff, many different sub-events are held within Campus Party, such as exhibitions, scientific conferences, various competitions and so on, so PC enthusiasts are guaranteed an interesting pastime.
Back in February we already wrote about another Campus Party, which was held in São Paulo (Brazil), and just a week ago this famous event visited Berlin, Germany, where it took place as a part of Campus Party Europe. It’s worth noting that the event in Berlin lasted for almost a week, therefore almost 10000 (yup, that’s ten thousand) people were able to visit it. Among the visitors to the event were PC enthusiasts of all kinds, including gamers and, of course, modders, many of which took the trouble of bringing their own modding projects with them.
Among the modders who came to Campus Party in Berlin this year were many famous modding enthusiasts, many of which also brought their modding projects with them, for example: p0Pe brought his PC-BETO modding projects and his still unfinished M8 casemod, Paslis took the trouble of bringing his Desk Art table-PC, alain-s brought his epic White casemod, while Editor22 attended the event with his new, but still unfinished, E22 — K2 modding project.
Among other things, Campus Party Berlin 2012 had many interesting scientific conferences for PC enthusiasts: finnish modder Japala (Jani Pönkkö) gave a talk about engraving, german modders Jochen Enderlein and Sven Moller delivered a report about steampunk genre, the famous modding brothers Stefan and Martin Blass (thechoozen) gave a talk about tools, which are used in modding, while Antony Leather, one of the authors of Bit-tech, talked about how to turn modding from a hobby into a profession. This Campus Party event also featured a modding contest, which was divided into two categories: Paslis won the custom modding project category with his Desk Art modding project, while alain-s was the winner in the classic casemod category with his White casemod.
