Our speakers are chosen by their skills, not their companies.
We make sure they feel taken care of and give the best of themselves on stage: airport pickup, 4-star hotel, expenses covered.
We spend a lot of time choosing not only the best speakers, but also the best balance.
Why keep it just to ourselves?
Access to high-quality, top-notch talks shouldn’t be just for big corporations; we don’t want money to be the reason not to attend.
A great environment that helps you focus in what’s important is paramount to guarantee a great learning experience.
We ensure everyone gets treated with respect. Check our Code of Conduct .
We’ve kept improving over the years thanks to the incredibly valuable suggestions from everyone involved.
We have a multi-phase, blind speaker selection that ensures we get the most diversity by looking at the content and delivery, not who’s behind it.
Getting new people on the stage is paramount to keep the conference ecosystem in shape. We have a reserved slot where anyone can jump in and speak their mind.
No one wants to spend two days sitting all that in a cheap plastic chair!
Multi-track conferences are a double- edge sword. While they seem to provide more variety, they present too many choices that can end up being frustrating. We want our attendees not to worry about anything and share a common experience they can further discuss at the halls or in the parties. It also forces us to ensure every single talk is amazing.
We’ve successfully organized from the ground up four editions of Barcelona Ruby Conference (establishing it as one of the main Ruby events in Europe), two editions of Barcelona Future JS, and two of Full Stack Fest.
But we’re not just a bunch of passionate developers: we also have an outstanding specialized media and production crew working with us making sure all aspects of the conference are taken care of in the most professional way. In total, it amounts to more than 25 people that we’re proud to consider our friends.
Full Stack Fest is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.Exhibitors in the expo hall, sponsor or vendor booths, or similar activities are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, exhibitors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified by t-shirts.
