Topple, the Smashing Cat is sitting on his chair enjoying SmashingConf

As the effects of COVID-19 are still so wide-reaching throughout the world, we can't proceed with the in-person events in 2020. However, we're happy to present the San Francisco event online, on November 10–11, and we'd love to see you there! Already have an in-person ticket? Here's what that means for you.

It was wonderful to enjoy SmashingConf SF Online with you on November 10–11, 2020.

The Smashing Cat is going online, y’all! Meet an inclusive, practical and friendly conference on front-end, design and UX.

Please respect our code of conduct and our accessibility statement.

What's SmashingConf Online Like?

With SmashingConf Online, we aim to bring all the valuable bits and pieces of an in-person conference to your fingertips. That means practical, hands-on sessions on front-end & UX, easy access to speakers and a friendly, approachable community.

That's just a start though. In interactive, live sessions you take the driver's seat, shaping the direction of the sessions as they are happening. We've set aside enough time for you to ask your questions in a dedicated fireside chat with experts and the community.

Not enough? You can also wander between discussion zones with mystery guests, meet old and new friends around the world and crack design & coding challenges. We provide full captioning in English language as well. That's SmashingConf Online.
