SmashingConf Oxford 2015 is coming in March 2015. We know that crafting a good front-end is no piece of cake, so we create very practical, hands-on events with a heavy focus on valuable insights and actionable takeaways. No basics, no fluff — just what you need to get smarter in your craft. To the tickets.
We care about techniques that work or don’t work in real projects, and why. We love lessons learned and insights in the design process. That's exactly what the conference will be about—and with lots of networking, jam sessions, an intimate atmosphere and spectacular surprises (lasers, anyone?), it's a conference you probably don’t want to miss.
2 days. 18 speakers. 7 workshops. Quality content only. A valuable, affordable event for designers and developers alike.
First Confirmed Speakers
When it comes to talks, we never compromise. Every talk has to deliver a value and have a purpose, so we thoroughly review every session to ensure that it fits within the theme of the entire event. First confirmed speakers are:
Jake Archibald (Front-End, Google)
Zoe M. Gillenwater (+ workshop) (Front-end, Flexbox)
Christopher Murphy (+ workshop) (Designer, Educator)
Mystery Speaker (Someone you definitely know.)
…more speakers will be announced soon!
Tickets are now on sale and they're selling fast. Only 350 tickets are available, and if you're quick enough, you can snap yourself one of the 50 early-bird tickets. Also, you may want to consider getting a workshop ticket, too, since you can then save £100 off the total price. Sounds good? Alrighty!
Convince Your Boss (PDF)
We've prepared a neat Convince Your Boss (PDF) (0.15 Mb) that you can use to convince your colleagues, friends, neighbors and total strangers to join you or send you to the event. We know that you will not be disappointed.
"8 reasons why you should send your incredibly hard-working, deserving employee to the SmashingConf" (PDF). Quite self-explanatory, really.
