What’s Smashing Conference Like?

SmashingConf is a friendly, inclusive event which is focused on real-world problems and solutions. 2 days, 1 track, 14 speakers, 300400 attendees and a bunch of hands-on workshops.

Our speakers rarely show slides: they show how they work — their setup, techniques and shortcuts for getting work done in live interactive sessions. So expect everything from refactoring and debugging to sketching and redesign, live.

SmashingConf is focused on front-end and UX, but it covers everything web, be it interface design or machine learning. That means a packed bundle of diverse, actionable insights for your work.

What’s the atmosphere like? Well, take a look at the conference showreel, videos from previous events, and photos.
