What's a Smashing Event Like?

With our Smashing Events, 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 and crack design & coding challenges. We provide automated captioning in English language as well. That's Smashing Events Online.
