Lunch Sessions

Last years lunch session crowd in Toronto

Interested in getting even more out of your Smashing experience? Our amazing friends from Microsoft and Deque are hosting a session to let you know more about what they do! This is session is free, comes with lunch and we only have 25 spots available.

At lunchtime, just follow one of the volunteers in the red shirts. Grab some lunch, settle in, and listen to what they have to say! All sessions take about 40 mins, so after the session you will still have time to relax and mingle.

The Web We Want — Microsoft

Monday, September 9th at 13:00

The Web We Want

If you build websites, you inevitably run into problems. Maybe there’s no way to achieve an aspect of your design using CSS. Or maybe there’s a device feature you really wish you could tap into using JavaScript. Or perhaps the in-browser DevTools don’t give you a key insight you need to do your job. We want to know your pain.

Submit your Wants for the Web and you could get to present it to an expert panel of judges and audience during this lunch session. Best of all, the top problems will win awesome prizes! Submit your wants for the web on the WebWeWant website ↬

Want to attend the lunch session? Make sure you register a free ticket below.
