When Flowers Start To Bloom, It’s A Sign That SmashingConf Oxford Is Coming Soon!

That’s why we create heavily practical Smashing Conferences, and the upcoming SmashingConf Oxford 201531 isn’t going to be an exception.

About The Conference

We don’t care about volatile trends, but we do care about things that work and don’t work in real projects, and why, and that’s exactly what the event will be focusing on. With practical talks, lots of networking, jam sessions, a personal, intimate atmosphere and spectacular surprises (lasers5, anyone?), this is a conference you probably won’t want to miss. A valuable, affordable community event for designers and developers who love their craft. Seriously.

No fluff, no basics, but real actionable insights that you can apply to your work right away. First speakers are already announced6, including Jake Archibald, Zoe M. Gillenwater, Tom Giannattasio, Natalie Yadrentseva, Richard Rutter, Paul Lewis and Peter Bilak. And we’ve got a few hands-on Front-End + RWD workshops7 as well, you know.
