Tickets for SmashingConf Barcelona 2015

We strongly believe that trends don’t matter, but techniques do. With SmashingConf Barcelona, we keep exploring interesting problems, smart solutions and lessons learned from actual projects. We highlight what has worked and what has failed — and why — so you know what to do next time you encounter similar problems. That’s what makes up the spirit of our conferences, and we take pride in it.

Practical takeaways from real-life projects.

It’s not just about techniques, though. We will also explore how designers and developers work, design and build, how they approach problems strategically and what workflows they use to find solutions. You’ll learn what warning signs and common stumbling blocks to watch out for, how to deal with them, and how to prevent them from happening. Think of it as a little playbook with handy rules of thumb: it doesn’t get more practical than this.

Palau de la Musica16
This year, the SmashingConf flags will be blowing in the breeze from the Palau de la Música Catalana — an architectural jewel of Catalan Modernism. (Large view17. Image credit: Pug Girl18).

We also want to hear your stories and your experiences. That’s why we also invite you to speak at the meet-up before the event. Taking place on October 20–21, it’s an event that might keep you on your toes for quite some time. Seriously.

Full-Day In-House Workshop? Sure!

We love fixing existing problems. Is your company struggling with legacy systems or a suboptimal workflow, front-end issues or responsive design? Well, perhaps we can help. We’d be more than happy to run in-house workshops in your company, tailored specifically to your needs. Get in touch.19

We are flexible about the topics and the format of the workshops, but what we really want is to actually help you solve your problems. Here are just some workshops ideas that we could run:

  • Responsive Web Design
    (e.g. clever tips, techniques, workflow, strategy)
  • Advanced Front-End Techniques
    (e.g. CSS/JS architecture, Sass, LESS, maintanence)
  • Performance Optimization
    (e.g. refactoring, optimization for mobile)
  • User Experience
    (e.g. mobile UX, design patterns, usability testing)
  • Conversion Rate Optimization
    (e.g. checkout process, Web forms)
  • Building and Debugging Web Apps
    (e.g. tools, strategy, maintenance issues)
  • Sketching and Wireframing
    (e.g. sketching interfaces)
  • …and more topics.

Interested? Brilliant! Let’s see what we can do! Just send a short email at vitaly@smashingconf.com20 and shortly describe what problems you’d like to solve. We’ll do our best to deliver the most value and effectively address your issues. Ah, and don’t worry about the pricing, we’ll find a fair pricing for sure. Yes, it’s that easy!

      Dear Justin,

      Thanks for your interest! Now, to your questions:

      1. We are using GoToWebinar to run the workshops, but of course we will provide you with the details regarding the tools and everything, so no worries!

      2. I will be recording the video/audio, of course.

      3. The video/audio will be provided per request after the workshop, but I would need a solid promise that they won’t be uploaded somewhere public. I hope you understand!

      Thanks, Justin!

      Hi Andy,

      1) It would be just fair if you buy 2-3 tickets for the whole group. :-)

      2) We’ll be recording the seminar, and provide the slides and the video afterwards.
