Schedule, stream & videos

You can find the schedule of the conference in the menu above, it's nearly final - minor changes are possible.
We will stream and record all talks. Our goal is to upload the best quality (1080 p video) to youtube for watching within an hour after a presentation ended. This quality is usually better than the live stream.

Information about streams and videos you will find on this page during the conference.

Saturday evening dinner: Wagamama

Wagamama is a Japense restaurant, well known for excellent Ramen. The 150 people who bought the dinner ticket will get a coupon on check-in at the conference. You are expected at 20:30 at the restaurant, which is just next to De Balie. Walk out, turn right and a minute later you're there. We have the whole restaurant exclusively for ourselves unti 24h. Will be fantastic!
