We are confirming our full line-up, and will have two or three web design experts speaking at our event. But you can already register your free ticket and spread the love! We open our virtual doors 15 minutes before we start on Tuesday, June 18, 2024 at 8 AM PT 🌍 and we’ll finish around 10 AM.

🌊 8 AM — San Diego (US)
👵🏾 11 AM — Miami (US)
🚂 5 PM — Copenhagen (DK)

We love it when our speakers do live things: they show how they work — their setup, techniques and shortcuts for getting work done in live interactive sessions. So you can learn from their techniques (and mistakes).

Vitaly, the one who loves ironing, front-end, UX and has tons of crazy ideas.
