    Since 2006, Smashing Magazine has been delivering useful and innovative information to web designers and developers around the world. The design community is full of talented and hard-working folks who come up with brilliant ideas every day. We provide a platform to share and discuss the work and knowledge of the best designers and developers out there, chase down the latest developments in the industry and stay on top of new techniques, methods, workflows and tricks.

    In 2012, we teamed up with Marc Thiele from Beyond Tellerrand to take Smashing Magazine’s philosophy to the next level and create the very first Smashing Conference. The event was a huge success, and a lot of fun, so we were delighted to run it again in 2013, with the same location, the same format, the same fantastic atmosphere and new first-class speakers.

    The conference moves beyond online communication and aims to bring web designers and developers closer together. We want to provide a forward-thinking event where people can connect and network with others on a personal level in a beautiful yet friendly environment.

    We aim to deliver the same high-quality content as our readers have come to expect from Smashing Magazine, while adding a personal touch to create an experience that brings great value to everyone involved. We’d love you to share how you work, design, code and build the web today and how we can all benefit from our experience to get better at our work.

    In 2020 we will be organising four conferences in San Francisco (USA), Austin (USA), Freiburg (Germany) and New York (USA). We hope to see you there!
