Workshops

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.


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
