Smashing Conference

Have you figured out responsive design, design for mobile, pattern libraries, SVG, Flexbox, HTTP/2, and all the tricky facets of designing for the web today? Well, we haven't either. That's why we've set up a conference about failures and successes in front-end and UX today—what worked, what didn't, and why, with lessons learned and practical techniques applicable to your work right away.

1 track, 2 full conference days, 8 workshops, 15 excellent speakers and just 400 available seats. The conference will be taking place in the one-of-a-kind New World Stage on June 14–15, 2016. Check the attendee list and our brand-new attendee pack.
