Full Product Description
A Community Event For Web DesignersThe conference will host a two-day single-track conference on September 15th and 16th, as well as four workshops on September 17th. At the heart Germany's beautiful city of Freiburg, the gorgeous Historical Merchants Hall at the foot of the Black Forest provides an uncontested setting for the event.We want the Smashing Conference to be a unique, valuable and friendly event for everybody involved. Not only do we want to provide new perspectives into Web design in general; more importantly, we want the event to focus on how exactly we, designers and developers, work, design and code to solve real-life problems. We’ll explore in detail what techniques, strategies and tools we use, but also what lessons we can learn from our personal experiences, successes and failures. Smashing Conference is an conference about how we work and play — and how we build the Web today.Keeping the conference affordable for everyone is important to us. All tickets include two full single-track conference days, on Monday and Tuesday. Please note that only 280 seats are available.

You’ll then update it with a viewport metatag, learn to find natural breakpoints, and test its performance.
