About The Conference

When preparing a conference, we care deeply about how practical and valuable it will be. With our very first SmashingConf L.A. (oh my!) on April 27–29th 2015, we'll focus on hands-on techniques and strategies. Be it your workflow, front-end, design, UX or nerdy performance tricks. In fact, we've prepared quite a treat for you:

  • Two full days packed with practical design/front-end talks and workshops—you'll leave with a treasure of useful tips and tricks applicable to your work right away!
  • Intimate, personal event with only 450 attendees. No crowded multi-track experience. 1 track, 2 days, 16 thoroughly curated speakers and lots of networking.
  • A quite spectacular conference experience in Santa Monica, right at the coast of the Pacific ocean, with an onshore ocean breeze and sunshine in the back!
