One event, run twice on 9th & 10th of November, in Brighton UK.
ffconf is a full day of eight carefully curated sessions for an audience that cares about the future of the web, and who want their ideas challenged.

  1. Rethinking the Web Platform

    James Kyle@thejameskyle

    Evolving the web to improve education, accessibility, performance, productivity, and design.

  2. If you're going out of San Francisco, be sure to wear Web Standards in your hair

    Bruce Lawson@brucel

    We do like our Holy Wars, don't we?: tables vs CSS? Responsive vs mdot? React vs Angular? CSS or CSS-in-JS? Let's look at the real issue: getting the free and open web to the other 4 billion people.

  3. How the web sausage gets made

    Monica Dinculescu@notwaldorf

    They say there's two things you never want to see made: sausages and web standards. Sooooo I'm going to tell you about both! How do browsers work? What are web components even? Everyone's using them and maybe you should too! 🆒🐱🎉

  4. Lessons learned sciencing the web

    Addy Osmani@addyosmani

    Discover what slows down modern apps on mobile and how to fix this.

  5. My Password Doesn't Work!

    Blaine Cook@blaine

    Security is important, but it doesn't have to be complex. Let's dispel myths and assuage fear associated with those linchpin of our online lives – passwords – and build toward a more secure and more usable web.

  6. Memory: Don't Forget to Take Out the Garbage

    Katie Fenn@katie_fenn

    JavaScript does a remarkable job of hiding memory management from us. What's going on behind the scenes?

  7. Abstract art in a time of minification

    Jenn Schiffer@jennschiffer

    aesthetic is a major component of any medium for art, including the web, but one thing that has been bothering me lately is: what happened to "view source"? are we destroying aesthetic for the sake of tooling and in spite of access to our industry????¿¿¿¿

  8. Alpha, Beta, Gamer: Dev Mode

    Joe Hart@joehart

    A live performance of video games and stand up comedy from comedian and coder, including pre prepared web games to play and even creating a video game with the audience on stage in only 10 minutes.
