Weekly tips on front-end & UX.
Trusted by 200,000+ folks.

What’s the state of CSS, Vue.js and Next.js? What are new, smart interface design patterns we could use? Let’s figure it out. With our online workshops on UX, front-end and design.

For many of us, personal workspace can feel quite comfortable and convenient, but nobody really wants to sign up for another full day of focused screen time. That’s why we break our online Smashing workshops down into 2.5h-sessions — with one session per day. This way, you always have enough time take it all in, try things out, rewatch a session or raise questions between sessions.

We’re super thrilled to announce the full program of workshops for the next months to come:

Our online workshops take place live and span multiple days across weeks. In every session, there is always enough time to bring up your questions or just get a cup of tea. We don’t rush through the content, but instead, try to create a welcoming, friendly and inclusive environment for everyone to have time to think, discuss and get feedback.

There are plenty of things to expect from a Smashing workshop, but the most important one is focusing on practical examples and techniques. The workshops aren’t talks; they are interactive, with live conversations with attendees, sometimes with challenges, homework and team work. Of course, you get all workshop materials and video recordings as well, so if you miss a session you can re-watch it the same day.

SmashingConf San Francisco 2022

Yes, it’s official! Next year, we’ll be organizing a SmashingConf in each of these cities: San Francisco, Freiburg, New York and Austin! Alongside in-house workshops, the first speakers have already been announced with talks by experts on accessibility, front-end, design systems, performance and interface design.

We’d love to meet you in person on March 28–31, 2022, at the waterfront next to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. There will be two days of talks, a single track, two workshop days, and loads of side events (all included in your ticket). For both the talks and the workshops, we have a good range of topics, varying from Figma to Web Performance and from SVG Animation to CSS Custom Properties. Jump to all speakers and topics →
