Monki Gras 2019

London, United Kingdom

**NB - As stated in our Directions for Applicants, we can only afford to cover travel within Europe. Apologies if this is unclear.** Monki Gras, the tech conference about Software, Craft, and Tech Culture, returns January 31 and Feb 1st 2019. The theme this year is Accessible Craft: Creating great experiences for everyone. The W3C says Accessibility, User experience and Inclusion are closely related concepts that we should consider together. This seems exactly right, and will form the basis of our conference theme in 2019. This year we want the Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility program to be the conference itself. From accessible web design, to making communities more welcoming and supportive with accessible documentation and codes of conduct, to creating spaces that work well for people with special abilities, to opening up crafts to under-represented groups. Sometimes it’s the small things – like using bigger font sizes as a matter of course in presentations. Sometimes we need fundamentally new design disciplines. As ever, at Monkigras we will “go meta”. We want people to learn from other disciplines. Talks might be on architecture – creating physical spaces that work better for a range of needs. Or technology oriented… Microsoft has been doing amazing work – by designing for people with special needs you create experiences that are better for everybody. How about bootcamps, bringing new people into tech? Good documentation can make an API or service more accessible. Good API design makes your services more accessible to a broad range of developers. We’re supposed to be making life easier, not harder for people, but sometimes (often) in tech we forget that. How can we retrofit legacy services for better accessibility? Or retrofit software? You have to balance a lot of potentially conflicting factors: 1. budget and the art of the possible 2. how does it promote the culture 3. you have to make a moral decision. It’s going to cost me more to retrofit, perhaps in running an event for example you won’t make more profit, but it’s the right thing to do. Accessibility challenges mean supporting edge cases. Take dietary needs for example. You have gluten free, dairy free, halal only, vegetarian, vegan, nut free allergy. All you can really do is do is your best. How can technology help with cost, risk, social and caring. Generally people with accessibility and inclusion needs want to know they’re being heard and considered. Accessibility can be about empathy as much as service or platform design. We want to the event to be as accessible as the theming. We’ll have closed captioning, and we’ll also be paying close attention to the needs of attendees. We are not experts and we will make mistakes, but hopefully you’ll forgive us and help us on our journey to making an argument for a more inclusive industry.

beyond tellerrand // DÜSSELDORF 2019

Düsseldorf, NRW, Germany

**beyond tellerrand** is an independent design and development event established in 2010 and organised by Marc Thiele. Two days with talks about design, technology, development and much more. Networking **in a very friendly and familiar atmosphere** is written in big letters as well. [beyond tellerrand](https://beyondtellerrand.com), the name of my event, is a mix of the English word “beyond” and the German word “Tellerrand”, which is the edge of a plate. In Germany you say “Über den Tellerrand schauen” which translates to “Look over the edge of your plate”, meaning something like “Think outside the box”. That describes the aim of mixing different topics to have (force!) people to not only look at their day by day stuff, but also look left and right. It also is shown in the mix of topics at the event, where quite a lot is about web related stuff (mostly front end or “web design”), but spiced with a lot of interesting and inspiring other stuff too.

New Adventures

Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom

Established for those who value design, New Adventures began as a trilogy of events between 2011–2013, welcoming 650 attendees from across the globe. We're back for 2019 and beyond, as it’s time to explore an uncertain future, together. Tools, frameworks, automation: what value do they offer, and how will they alter the way digital experiences form? Will you be essential or expendable? Did design sleep in while everyone else got busy defining a new rulebook for our industry? We'll talk about designing smarter. We'll consider labour and ethics, education and inclusivity, the disappearance of weirdness and fun. We'll reconvene, recalibrate, and re-energise digital design. Our speakers include Ethan Marcotte, Jeremy Keith, Clare Sutcliffe MBE, Naz Hamid, Helen Joy, and Jessica White, and we have fringe events across three days in the city.

Testing is important. This conference is about getting experts and practitioners together to talk, learn and practice the art of testing. We’re looking into advanced new methods into making our testing more effective, as well as enrich our understanding of fundamental methods to grow a stronger community. We’re tired of conferences that feel more like sales pitches than practitioners sharing the craft. Come. Learn. Do. Teach. Test. In case you did not know, we don't make our speakers pay. We reimburse travel and share our profits with them. We believe that allows for a more diverse selection and our programme attests to that. Different people learn in different ways. Conferences are great places to try many styles of learning, great places to connect to other professionals. At the European Testing Conference we have many styles for our sessions. In the beginning of the conference, we have session geared to connect audience with each other. Making the conference more welcoming and less scary place to be.

FFS Tech Conf Down Under

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

We’re bringing FFS Tech Conf to Australia! FFS Tech Conf is a conference that started in London as a “jokey early morning tweet exchange” and became a one-day single-track conference. The original FFS Tech Conf legends are a group of tech professionals who were a little bit done with the typical conference format. In their own words: “We’ve been dismayed by many recent conferences which seem monopolised by well-meaning and erudite speakers giving convincing presentations on non-controversial subjects, based on opinion rather than experience, delivered to what is effectively an echo chamber of fellow professional presenters and an audience so bamboozled by the intricately constructed arguments that they’re not sure whether or how to challenge what is said.” - [FFS Tech Conf](https://ffstechconf.org/about/) They created a conference where participants could engage in structured rants about their frustration with some of the unnecessary complexity and willful stupidity in software delivery, and where the audience could engage in discussion afterwards. It’s somewhere between an unconf and public forum debate. We were inspired by this concept and watched intently the twitter action from afar. We decided to bring the concept to Australia, and thus, FFS Tech Conf Down Under was born. We aim to adhere to the ethos of the original FFS Tech Conf and have been in touch with the original organising team. We hope to be the catalyst for many other FFS Tech Confs around the world and in the other states of Australia. ## Ethos At its core FFS Tech Conf is a grassroots movement. While presenting a chance for participants to experience catharsis, it is mostly an opportunity to get to the heart of a matter with people who care and have something to contribute. We’re hoping as much as possible to replicate the experience of the London conference, which attracted a diverse set of voices, who normally would not attend conferences, and were energised by the concept of participating FFS Tech Conf. Additionally, like the London conference, we will be running this as a not-for-profit initiative because we see the need and the demand for it rather than for financial reward. We’re looking to run a quality event that supports speakers and audience alike, promoting diversity, inclusion and accessibility. ## Format Sessions at FFS will all have a title beginning with “FFS …” and will consist of a 10-15 minute rant followed by 10-15 minutes for discussion. Sessions last no more than 15 minutes of rant about technology, it's practice or its use (30 minutes of discussion to follow each rant). Additionally, we’ll be opening up the conference to people in technology who have been ‘off the tools’ for a bit, like Product Managers and strategy leads. We’ll be following the programme of the original event, including the amazing lightning/insta rants in the evening.
