About the book

Please note that the book will be released at the end of September. To start reading right away, you can download a pre-release version with chapters by Laura Elizabeth, Lyza Gardner, Rachel Andrew, and Vitaly Friedman already today (PDF). Also available as a gorgeous, printed hardcover.

Smashing Book 6 is dedicated to the challenges and headaches that we are facing today, and how to resolve them. No chit-chat, no theory: only practical, useful advice applicable to your work right away.

We’ll explore how to build accessible single-page apps with React or Angular, how to use CSS Grid Layout, CSS Custom Properties and service workers as well as how to load assets on the web in times of HTTP/2 and bloated third-party scripts.

We’ll also examine how to make design systems work in real-life, how to design and build conversational interfaces, AR/VR, for chatbots and watches and how to bring responsive art-direction to the web. Smashing Book 6 will get you ready for the new frontiers and challenges.
