As a reminder to all, the videos from the last CCC Congress are all online available at media.ccc.de and there is lots of interesting stuff there.
Many of them were held in English so they should be accessible to most of you, but even those that were held in German usually have a live translation audio stream. That audio stream is NOT available in the web player, but if you download the video from the download tab, those have a second audio channel with the live translation.

On each page there is also a small link to
events.ccc.de below the video which links to that talk's page in the
Fahrplan. There you can get more detailed information about the talk, see what language it was held in but also leave feedback on the talk after watching it. Sometimes there are additional links to download the slides or other supplemental info.

Revisiting SSL/TLS Implementations by Sebastian Schinzel may be interesting to you if you are into timing attacks and other problems with SSL/TLS. If you want a complete overview his two older talks from 28c3 (Time is on my Side) and 29c3 (Time is NOT on your Side) might also be of interest.
Less technical, but fun to watch is the talk by starbug
A nice introduction if you want to know more about ECC Crypto and Curve design is
If you are into programming languages and buggy code, you might find
list flattening, and while it's really useful, in can bite you.
The real question is: Why would anyone even think of using DBI::quote instead of prepared statements?
If anyone needs to be reminded that a good crypto algorithm is not everything, Nadia Heninger, Julia Angwin, Laura Poitras and Jack Gillum had a session called
I hope you have fun watching them and encourage you to leave feedback on talks that you watched via the
events.ccc.de link – as a speaker myself I know how valuable that is.
