Topple, the Smashing Cat is sad.

Unfortunately, due to recommendations from the Austin's Governor's office restricting movement in Texas, and with countless travel bans in place affecting speakers, attendees, and team members, we cannot give you the conference experience you expect and deserve.

For these, and many more reasons, SmashingConf Austin will be postponed until October 13–14, with workshops on the 12th and 15th.
