Topple the cat playing a game of Jenga

SmashingConf Live is an online conference on June 9 and 10. Instead of full days, it will take two half days, to make it more approachable for everyone. Schedule of Day 1.

Both days start at 8 AM PDT (check your time), with interactive sessions, followed up with a time for Q&As and discussion zones.

But of course that’s not all! Be prepared for design & coding challenges, scavenger hunt and fireplace sessions with mystery guests. And to keep in style, of course we’ll throw a Smashing Party.

We will be posting a detailed schedule soon.

Designer vs. Developer!

Designers and developers often have poor relationships, due to bad process. Their interactions are apathetic at best and antagonistic at worst. Designers iterate over rounds of unrealistic comps, leaving a stupidly short runway for developers to actually build the product. Developers recoil from the design process and expect designers to figure everything out so they only have to build things once.

In this session, designer Dan Mall and developer Brad Frost will duke it out on stage once and for all. Can they identify a better process that prioritizes collaboration and conversation? Is designing in the browser really possible? Is higher quality products in a faster pace the holy grail? Can they finally say goodbye to a traditional, waterfall, handoff process? You’ve gotta attend to find out!
