Trends don't matter, but techniques do. We love exploring things that actually worked, or failed, in actual projects — and SmashingConf NYC won't be an exception. 1 track, 2 conference days, 5 workshops, 16 excellent speakers and just 400 available seats. With the main focus on networking and practical takeaways from real-life projects, you really don't want to miss this one.
Taking place on June 16–17th 2015 right next to the Times Square in New York City, this might be an event that will keep you on your toes for quite some time. Seriously.
