Workshops

Vitaly Friedman giving a remote workshop.

Our online workshops aim to give the same experience and access to experts that you would have in an in-person workshop, without needing to leave your desk or couch.

Follow along with practical examples and interactive exercises. Ask questions during dedicated Q&A time and use workshop recordings and workshop materials to study at your own pace.

The recordings are available immediately. If you miss a session, you can always re-watch it later, so you’ll be up to date for the next day!

    Workshop, 5×2h + Q&A • Thu & Fri, Apr 2–17
    Are you ready for a design challenge? In this series of online workshops, Vitaly Friedman, creative lead behind Smashing Magazine, will be taking a microscopic examination of common components and design patterns in modern interfaces — on desktop and on mobile.

    We’ll study 100s of hand-picked examples and we'll be designing interfaces together, starting from accordions, to mega-drop-downs, sliders, feature comparisons, car configurators — all the way to timelines and onboarding. And: we’ll be reviewing and providing feedback to each other’s work.

    In this all-new workshop, Rachel 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.

    Resilient Web Systems with CSS & Sass

    with Miriam Suzanne

    Workshop, 6×2h + Q&A • May 7–22
    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.
