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. All video recordings are included, so if you miss a session, you can re-watch any time.

Jump to all upcoming workshops ↓

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

Blown away by all the knowledge I’ve soaked in from @rachelandrew’s online CSS layout masterclass. Incredible how much you can learn about a thing you thought you already knew just by hearing it explained again. Thanks for organising this @smashingconf #smashingconf ✨

    Dynamic CSS Masterclass

    with Lea Verou

    Workshop, 5×2h + Q&A Tue & Wed, May 25 — June 8
    09:00 – 11:30 AM PT (Pacific, US) 18:00 – 20:30 CET (Europe)

    Calling CSS custom properties “CSS variables” buries the lede. Sure, they can be used as simple variables, in the same way as Sass variables, but using custom properties for fonts and colors is only utilizing a tiny fraction of their power.

    Used to their full extent, CSS custom properties can facilitate better collaboration and code reuse, improve maintainability, and downright enable possibilities that previously required large amounts of hard-to-maintain Javascript and violated separation of concerns. They truly are a revolution in the way we write CSS, whose potential is still largely untapped. Now that they are finally supported by every modern browser, there is no excuse not to dive in.

    With HTTP/3 + QUIC, Service Workers, Micro Front-Ends, JAM Stack, PWA, TypeScript, Web Assembly, AVIF, Variable Fonts, CSS Custom Properties and clamp(), Client Hints and Resource Hints, CSS Subgrid and SVG2, we all are still trying to figure out just the right strategy for building websites and apps efficiently.

    We’ll explore a resilient, actionable strategy for building fast, scalable experiences. We’ll look into accessibility, text compression, image optimization, web font delivery, critical CSS, CSS layouts, JavaScript delivery, and improving Core Web Vitals along with performance bottlenecks. We will also explore tooling, how to make sense of DevTools network waterfalls and performance flame charts, WebPageTest, and a few little utilities along the way.

    Level-Up With Modern CSS

    09:00 – 11:30 AM PT (Pacific, US) 18:00 – 20:30 CET (Europe)

    Modern CSS has increased and improved the available CSS properties and layout behaviors, with modern browsers nearly in-sync for critical feature support. But — if you haven’t looked into CSS in a while, or have typically relied on frameworks to do the heavy lifting, it can seem overwhelming to figure out how to level-up your CSS skills!

    Throughout this workshop, we’ll create our own CSS framework in order to learn about what modern CSS has to offer us.

    09:00 – 12:00 AM PT (Pacific, US) 18:00 – 21:00 CET (Europe)

    Navigation is everywhere on the web — in accordions, in hamburger menus, mega-dropdowns, bottom bars, tabs, carousels, filters and search. Sometimes they open on tap, sometimes on click, sometimes on hover. Sometimes they open and collapse automatically, and sometimes auto-apply or patiently wait for a manual confirmation.

    But what’s the right way to pave a clear path to your customers while also reaching your business goals and drive traffic and engagement along the way?

    In eCommerce, an average abandonment rate is around 65–68%. This is usually caused by ambiguous copywriting and severe problems related to finding or understanding products, or a painfully slow checkout. We can’t bring the abandonment rate to 0, but we can shave off at least 15% with some smart and straightforward optimizations. So let’s do just that!

    With this series of 5×2.5h workshop sessions, we’ll set up a very clear roadmap on how we can show the right details and ask for the right data in the right order and at the right pace to improve conversion and customer satisfaction. That means removing distractions, minimizing friction and avoiding disruptions and dead ends caused by the seemingly beautiful UI.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
