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
