What Are Smashing Events Like?
Smashing organises friendly, inclusive events focused on real-world problems and solutions. We organise about 3 hybrid SmashingConfs and six online-only Smashing Meets events per year.
Smashing Conferences take place in a few amazing locations over 3–5 days, 1 track, with 12 speakers, 300–600 attendees, 3–6 workshops and a bunch of fun side events.
Smashing Meets are our free online community events, where we have a few speakers focusing on one topic, and have between 100–3,000 online attendees.
Smashing events are focused on front-end and UX, but it covers everything web, be it interface design or machine learning. That means a packed bundle of diverse, actionable insights for your work.
