Rachel Andrew giving a workshop at SmashingConf NY in 2020

Conference sessions are one thing, but full-day hands-on workshops are an entirely different beast. On the day before and on the day after the conference, you can dive deep into your topic of interest: be it Smart Responsive UX Design Patterns or Next Steps With CSS Layout.

We have announced five workshops, we will announce three more soon!

Join one of the hands-on workshops with a limited number of seats. Tickets for the full-day workshops cost $499 — all booking fees included. If you buy a combo ticket, you will save USD 100 and get access to three days of world-class of workshop learning and our Smashing conference experience. Lunch will be provided on both workshop days.

Workshops include…

  • Snacks and drinks during the whole day
  • Tea and coffee
  • Lunch
  • Paper and pen/pencil

There’s more content in this 1 day SVG workshop than in some 3 day courses. Brilliant job @SaraSoueidan! #smashingconf

    Resilient Web Systems with CSS & Sass

    with Miriam Suzanne

    Full-day workshop • Monday, October 19th
    From building beautiful sites to maintaining complex design systems across multiple applications, CSS is the web-language of design.

    Join Miriam for a deep-dive into the heart of CSS: how it works, what makes it special, and how we can harness it for resilient and maintainable design systems that scale. Rather than learning a single convention or toolkit, you’ll learn the fundamentals that all conventions share – how to think with CSS, and make smart decisions for your own project.

    The CSS Layout Masterclass

    with Rachel Andrew

    Full-day workshop • Thursday, October 22nd
    We’ve been learning CSS and CSS for Layout in the same way since we broke free of table-based layouts in 2001, however CSS has grown-up and over the last few years a proper and consistent system for layout has emerged.

    In this all-new workshop Rachel Andrew will take you through this new system for layout, giving you the ability to properly understand and use CSS Layout with real understanding of why things behave as they do.

    With HTTP/2, Service Workers, Progressive Web Apps, Variable Fonts, CSS Custom Properties, Client Hints and Resource Hints, Flexbox, CSS Grid Layout, SVG, WAI-ARIA roles and Font Loading API now available in browsers, we all are still trying to figure out just the right strategy for building websites and apps efficiently.

    We want to use all of these technologies and smart processes, but how can we use them efficiently, and how do we achieve it within a reasonable amount of time?
