There are no tickets for the conference, but you must bring a form of identification (bank card, driving licence etc) to pick up your delegate programme which also acts as your pass. Please keep your pass with you at all times as you will need it to get back into the conference.

If you plan to bring a laptop, make sure it's fully charged for the day, as we only have a few charging stations in the venue.

There is no wifi. I mean, it's a cinema, why would it have the internets! Network coverage however is very good, so you can tether your mobile phone or bring your own mifi or dongle, etc.

In fact, it's even been known that some people go classic old school and use a pen and paper! See: :)


Tea, Coffee and Danishes will be available from 9am in the upstairs bar and the ground floor. Further refreshments will be available from the same locations at the mid morning and mid afternoon breaks. Please note lunch is not included but we have a few recommendations here:

Photos, videos, tweets and blog posts

Yes, yes, yes, do it! Yes to all. Hashtag those bad boys with #ffconf and you're welcome to add your pictures to the photo group:

(Note with the group pool, you need to "join", but it's open to all.)

Feel free to follow the Twitter account @ffconf for the latest info on the event.

After Party

Please join us at the After Party, kindly sponsored by DigitalOcean, at The Loft from 6:15pm-late: (bring your pass for entry). They'll be some food available until 10pm and free drinks vouchers on the door.

The venue is open to all ages, but those of you under 18 years old, we ask that you don't try to buy any alcoholic drinks or ask anyone else to ask on your behalf. You will also need to leave by 10pm as the venue doesn't have a license for under 18s beyond this time. All important, I'm sure you'll be super awesome and play nice.
