Trends don't matter, but techniques do. With our new SmashingConf Oxford, we keep exploring interesting problems, smart solutions and lessons learned from actual projects. We highlight what has worked or failed — and why — so you know what to expect when you face similar problems. That's the spirit of our conferences, and we take pride in it.
Just a SmashingConf. The conference will be taking place in the magical Oxford Town Hall, an architectural jewel on its own.
No theory, no fluff, just curated quality content. 2 conference days, 1 track, hands-on workshops and 16 speakers improving their craft on small or large scale every single day. We embrace respect and tolerance with our code of conduct.
Taking place on March 15–16, 2016 in the one-of-a-kind Oxford Town Hall, this conference will keep you on your toes for quite some time. Seriously.Grab your early-birds already!
