On the day before, and the day after the conference, we are running six practical in-person workshops, focused on various front end topics. These workshops also take place at Fort Mason.

Our workshops are practical, good value and focus on front end skills and tools which will immediately help you become a better developer. On top of that, they are also good fun, and let you interact with your teacher and other workshoppers as well.
