As guest authors for Smashing Magazine, it only makes sense we’re excited about their upcoming conference in San Francisco.

Their conference is an in-person extension of the practical content we love on their site. Based on their speaker lineup and topics, the multidisciplinary conference tears apart UX and front-end development case studies to explore:

  • How to solve problems
  • Identifying failed ideas
  • Learning why certain ideas failed
  • How to arrive at better decisions
