It is our intention to provide the best framework for the best possible experience and we spare neither trouble nor expenses to make this happen. With the lessons learned we believe that this is an ongoing process in many areas.
After testing quite a few setups the current location is, at this moment, the best we could find in Berlin. Plenty of space and nice surroundings in a vibrant part of the city. So we will stick with that one.
Since this event is (more or less) self-organized it is hard to find the right setup to present all topics in a way where they don't interfere with each other. From the fixed timetable at the first dotfmp until the slightly chaotic one in 2015 and the Room moderators in 2016 we are still not really happy with how it goes. Since we're still in discussions the final way of handling the event will be set before Spring 2018.
Since lowering the number of attendees by setting a Limit didn't work and ended up in a higher number, we want to reach 126 Attendees this year. The fixed fee of 333,33 EUR net of tax to attend will remain but we're still open for YOUR opinions on to change for the better. In case some people want show an extended support by either organizing something socializing, help to handle the whole event or come up with something else which is a benefit for all, I'm open to offer a voucher to get a discount for the ticket. Please get in touch with me BEFORE you register!
Usage of the income:
In general ALL costs will be backed up by us, which means if we can't cover the expenses by the income, we personally pay for it. Since there is no "Showing your sympathy" this year, we rely solely on the number of attendees (who pay!). Those who have been there before know that I am loosing a fair amount of money each year just to make it happen! For those who believe I'm doing this for the money or the fame I have two words: "Fuck off"!
We will close the registration on 8 April 2018!
