Update (17.09.2014): The conference is over, but we have a few ideas for the next one already! Join us at SmashingConf Whistler, Canada and track SmashingConf Oxford 2015 in March 2015! In the meantime, we're collecting slides and coverage of the conference.
How exactly do we work, design and code to solve real-life problems? What are the lessons learned from recent projects? SmashingConf Freiburg is back, and it's never been as practical. 1 track, 2 conference days, 4 workshops, 18 excellent speakers and just 300 available seats. Taking place on 15-16th Sep 2014 in our lovely hometown Freiburg, Germany. Check the SmashingConf Freiburg attendees list.
To keep our tradition of organizing conferences at unique places, we did not choose lovely Freiburg randomly. The conference will be taking place in the one-of-a-kind Freiburg Town Hall on September 15–16, 2014, and since it's a Smashing conference, you should expect surprises here and there, and no, we're not going to reveal them just yet!
