We have set the date, jetzt lass den Spaß beginnen! (Something like that!)

Our conference in Freiburg has 2 days of talks (single track), and 1 workshop day, with plenty of friendly side events before and after the event. All of them have a few things in common: brought to you by amazing speakers and with practical takeaways everywhere!

The conference will go into topics like accessibility, CSS, JavaScript, web performance, design, UX and design systems. We’ll also explore uncharted territory: from age-friendly and environment-friendly design to privacy and remote work.

I got to hear from people who are the best at what they do in the web industry—authors, creative directors, researchers, and so much more. It was an exceptional line-up!

Schauinsland Cable Car Tour🚠

Come with us to discover the life at 1284 meters above sea level with the Schauinsland Cable Car. With the longest loop cable car in Germany, you will reach the peak of Freiburg and its stunning panorama in 20 minutes.

We'll be meeting in front of the venue and go from there. The entrance fee of €13.50 is not included in your conference ticket. Bring some small change, so we can get a group ticket together.


Jam Session

The night before the conference kicks off, we’re hosting a warm-up event with our dear friends from Virtual Identity, with drinks and talks from your fellow attendees.

We hope you’ll join us to connect ahead of the main event! We hope to see at the Figma for an evening of talks and meeting new people! Please register so we know you’re coming!
