The annual SmashingConf Freiburg, also known as Smashing Conference, is produced by the creators of Smashing Magazine, an online publication centering on web development, especially using the Wordpress publishing platform. The event includes conversations, educational sessions and ideas presentations.
The 5th annual SmashingConf Freiburg takes place from September 12th–13th, 2016 at the foothills of the Black Forest in Germany. The Black Forest (in German, that’s “Schwarzwald”) is a large forested mountain range in the state of Baden-Württemberg, located in southwestern Germany. It is bounded by the Rhine valley to the west and south.
The event’s stated mission is to explore real-life web design problems and techniques that are relevant and applicable to designers and developers. A single track with 15 speakers is intended to present a focused learning experience. An intimate environment of just 260 attendees is meant to ensure a friendly atmosphere during the programming.
The historic Kaufhaus, also known as Merchants’ Hall, is the venue for the conference and three of the workshops.
