1. Next Level CSS

    Rachel Andrew

    While we were all looking the other way browsers have been implementing CSS features that do things you might think you need JavaScript or at least a pre-processor to achieve. We’ll take a tour through what is landing in the CSS specifications and your browsers right now and in the very near future.

    With new web technologies enabling a new generation of install-able app-like websites it is important to ensure the web carries on working for everyone.

  7. A brief history and mishistory of modularity

    Ashley Williams

    "MAKE IT MODULAR," they said. "IT WILL BE BETTER," they said. Modularity is a term so common in today, that it's easy to uncritically accept it as a fundamental development principle. What does "modularity" actually mean? We will talk through the technical etymology of "modularity" and examine history on both its current use today, and where it's heading in the future.

  8. Art.js

    Mathieu 'p01' Henri

    What is creative coding, especially with realtime animations and data visualisation. Looking at the animation loop, some gotchas & tricks (e.g. cheap motion blur or glow), sound synthesis, and more. Then we'll do a live coding session to put in this practice, have fun and create something cool together!


Advanced CSS Layout Training

Mastering browser devtools



ffconf takes diversity seriously. We know that a diverse line-up is important for the inclusion of marginalised people in the tech community.

We want people to attend because of the content we provide, not who's presenting it. As such, we only reveal our speakers at the day of the conference.

This statement is our approach to make our commitment to diversity as transparent as possible. We are striving to do better each year.

In 2015, ffconf's speaker distribution included 50% women and this year we intend to maintain diversity in our speakers. And we are proudly holding our event in Brighton.

This isn't something we should be proud of, because it should be the norm, but it is what we've got and we'd like to share that with you.

You can also apply for our diversity scholarship, open until 9-September 2016.

A special thanks ❤

This year, the following companies and individuals helped the scholarship by purchasing a diversity ticket which helped others attend where typically they may not been able to. So we would like to extend a special thanks, in no particular order, to:
