Breaking things with emoji 💥

Are you the kind of person who, when given a personalized link with some number in it, will always try out different numbers to see if things are secured? Do you enjoy exposing security mishaps and edge cases that weren’t thought off by developers, not for profit but for the simple fun of it? If that describes you, I’ve got another thing you could try to feed your curiosity: putting emoji where they don’t belong. It‘s gonna break more stuff than you’d think.🏳️‍⚧️
In early 2021, I started experimenting with emoji domains: something that wasn’t really intended and is a consequence of a way to include non Roman letters in domain names. It was pretty broken and just fun to do. The fact that not much software seems to handle emoji domains properly motivated me to try putting regular emoji in spaces where they don’t belong. The results were pretty funny, if you share my screwed up sense of humor. In this talk I want to share some of my "findings", adding to the things I already spoke about [at last year’s divoc](https://media.ccc.de/v/divoc-reboot-to-respawn-2021-1-emoji-domains-and-how-wonderfully-broken-they-are).

Ich möchte in diesem Talk einige der Ereignisse nochmal Revue passieren lassen und aus den Ereignissen und Vorkommnissen auch Handlungsempfehlungen und Grundlagen für weitere Diskussionen zu dem Thema ableiten.

Glaubt mensch der öffentlichen und politischen Kommunikation rund um das "EU Convid Certificate" aka. den "Green Pass", wie er in der Politik gerne genannt wird, so könnte mensch den Eindruck gewinnen, dass es sich dabei um schwarze Magie handelt, die niemand verstehen kann. In diesem Talk möchte ich aufzeigen, wie elegant das "EU Digital COVID Certificate" eigentlich entworfen wurde, dass die Technologie dahinter eigentlich sehr einfach zu verstehen ist, die Limitation (zusätzlicher Ausweis ...

Warpforge is a "Build Anything" tool for the modern era with a deep emphasis on the ability to "factory reset" the build environment at any time -- and not just reset one environment to a checkpoint, but also to be able to effortlessly reproduce all the prior builds and computations that produce the "factory floor" itself, too: on demand, and without fuss. How much time have you lost to debugging library versioning mismatches? How often has a system update left your machine in a broken state? ...
