Smashing Conf Barcelona

You know, we use ad-blockers as well. We gotta keep those servers running though. Did you know that we publish useful books and run friendly conferences — crafted for pros like yourself? E.g. our upcoming SmashingConf Barcelona, dedicated to smart front-end techniques and design patterns.

We’re Touring Through Southeast Asia: Join The Mozilla Developer Roadshow!

We love exploring opportunities. While many of us are quite familiar with publications and events surrounding us, we often lack the global perspective on what’s happening in the web industry across the world. For example, do you know what the state of web design in Singapore is? What about front-end events in Kuala Lumpur? What about the acceptance of UX-driven processes in Hong Kong? That’s exactly what we want to find out!

For that reason, we’re happy to have teamed up with our friends at Mozilla for the Developer Roadshow Asia1, so we can connect and learn from designers and developers in southeastern Asia. Together, we’re planning on organizing a series of informal, free meetup-style events for people who build for the web. On September 19th to 25th, folks from around the globe will be getting together in Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City, Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Hong Kong. Do join us, won’t you?

So, What’s The Roadshow About? Link

Five days, four countries, five cities: the Mozilla Developer Roadshow Asia aims to connect local communities and build lasting relationships. With our meet-ups, we’ll explore how agencies and companies in Southeast Asia work, and what their processes are like: from graphic design tools to build tools, frameworks and libraries.

We’ll also dive deep into bleeding edge web technology, such as VR, CSS Grid4, Web Assembly and Service Workers. These are only a few of the topics that will be tackled on this journey, and there’ll be plenty of room to address key items that affect the browsers we use every day, too, of course! After the trip, we’ll sum up our findings in detailed articles right here, on yours truly Smashing Magazine.

    This is magnificent news! I live in Kuala Lumpur, and there are not as many inspiring events or conferences as you can find in Europe, especially those with inspiring talks to empower developers and designers with knowledge, instead of trying to sell you something. I’ll be certainly joining the roadshow.

    Amazing! But why not Thailand??? Please, next time add it too!

    Awesome. Hope you can swing by Manila too.
