–— ★★★★★ –— About The Show: "Real-World Front-End and UX"
Can you tell the truth from the lies? Honesty from deception? Myths from heartbreaking real-life experiences? Have you figured out responsive design, mobile, pattern libraries, SVG, Flexbox, performance, HTTP/2 — and all the mischievous, erratic facets of designing for the web today?
Damn right: we haven't either! That's why the acclaimed Smashing Production group set up a flabbergasting showabout disillusions, failures, successes and superpowers in Real-World Front-End/UX today — what worked, what didn't, and why, with lots of busted myths, horror design stories, lessons learned and techniques applicable to your work.
A SmashingConf opening show. With sparkling lasers last year, how spooky will the performance be this year?
No boring or dull chatter! A provocative marvel for the eye and the mind — with sensational performance by talented masters of the craft! 2 breathtaking days, 1 astonishing track, 6 mind-blowing workshops and 16 spine-tingling speakers improving their craft on small or large scale every single day. We embrace respect and tolerance with our code of conduct.
