About The Conference

So you know what's going on in front-end. You've been working with pattern libraries and atomic design and Gulp and SMCSS and BEM and HTTP/2 and Flexbox and SVG. What you might not know though is what pitfalls and traps other web designers have encountered in practice — to prevent issues creeping out down the road.

With SmashingConf San Francisco 2016, we bring together experienced speakers to share practical front-end/UX techniques, lessons they've learned and their workflows. You'll learn what worked or failed in actual projects, and why. You don't have to make the same mistakes in your projects.

Just a SmashingConf. You should be expecting a few mysteries and surprises along the way, you know.

The conference will cover CSS techniques and JavaScript architecture, SVG and Flexbox techniques, performance optimization and psychology insights, UX strategies and design workflows, tips on establishing and maintaining pattern libraries, and techniques to produce resilient, fast responsive websites. All learned from actual, real-life projects.

No theory, no fluff, just curated quality content. 2 conference days, 1 track, hands-on workshops and 16 speakers, taking place on April 5–6, 2016 in Fort Mason, with a beautiful backdrop on the Golden Gate Bridge. Of course, we embrace respect and tolerance with our code of conduct. Seriously, this conference will literally blow you away.

Alrighty, tickets are available today.

Convince Your Boss PDF
"Eight reasons why you should send your incredibly hard-working, deserving employee to the SmashingConf" (PDF). Quite self-explanatory, really.

We prepared a neat Convince Your Boss (PDF) that you can use to convince your boss (or total strangers!) to send you to the event. Maybe we're biased, but we know it's worth it.

  3. Guidelines for scalable CSS and JavaScript,
  4. Gotchas and techniques when using SVG and Flexbox,
