Schedule & Program
| NEW The IFF Community Platform
| Based on the open source software Frab, the IFF Community Platform has been carefully designed to respond to the needs of human rights defenders events. Keeping the open source spirit, the IFF Community Platform is up on GitHub for all event organizers to download and make use of, and also to allow for contributions from developers and designers.
The IFF_Schedule is now housed on the brand NEW IFF Community Platform. Please note, there is a pad linked on each session description. This is where you should put all notes pertaining to that session.
Please Take Notes!
Taking notes is a great way to give back to all of those who couldn’t make it to the IFF. This year taking collaborative notes is easier than ever. Each session page in the public schedule includes unique Etherpad URL for note taking. For example: https://platform.internetfreedomfestival.org/en/IFF2018/public/schedule/custom/195
