Smashing Conference

What’s the best way to learn? By observing designers and developers working live. For our new conference in Toronto, all speakers aren’t allowed to use any slides at all. Welcome SmashingConf #noslides, a brand new conference in Toronto, full of interactive live sessions, showing how web designers design and how web developers build — including setup, workflow, design thinking, naming conventions and everything in-between.

Taking place in wonderful Toronto on June 26–27, with 15 knowledgeable speakers, a handful of practical workshops — and a broad range of topics with everything web.

Live CSS/JS coding, live accessibility audit, live designing, live debugging, live sketching, performance profiling — we'd love to see you live in Toronto! ;-)
