Sun, sea, sand — and the very best of practical quality content. This spring, we’re bringing our friendly conference to the shores of Santa Monica! 1 track, 2 conference days, 5 workshops, 14 speakers and just 300 available seats, on 27–30th April 2015. Check the attendee list.

We'll look into things that have or haven’t worked, and why, and what worked better. The focus of the SmashingConf is tangible, actionable insights that you can apply to your work right away. Be it your workflow, front-end, design, development, UX or performance tricks.

With practical talks and a gorgeous location, we’ll be pairing some of the most engaging and knowledgeable speakers with a lot of networking and an intimate atmosphere. Oh my, we can’t wait to bring the event to the West Coast!
