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.
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.
