What's SmashingConf Live Like?

With SmashingConf Live, we aim to bring all the valuable bits and pieces of an in-person conference to your fingertips. That means practical, hands-on sessions on front-end & UX, easy access to speakers and a friendly, approachable community.

That's just a start though. In interactive, live sessions you take the driver's seat, shaping the direction of the sessions as they are happening. We've set aside enough time for you to ask your questions in a dedicated fireside chat with experts and the community.

Not enough? You can also wander between discussion zones with mystery guests, meet old and new friends around the world, crack design & coding challenges, and ask for a live audit of your site or app. We provide full captioning in English language as well. That's SmashingConf Live.
