Meet Smashing Meets
Meets is our online-only, community meet-up event that we have been running since the spring of 2020.
The events are usually centered around a topic or cause, and feature a few amazing speakers and some side-events. We try to run our online events the way we like all events: friendly & inclusive, with amazing speakers and some fun & banter on the side.
Below you can find the events we've ran so far. The first two didn't have their own pages yet, but the rest do, so you can check videos, topics, talks, speakers and much more.

This edition was all about seeing how we can use data to tell our stories, how and where we get the data, and how we get from data to visualizations that work well — online!
With two talks and a challenge on Data Viz we learned — and laughed — a lot!
Sometimes, if we are not sure about something, we might need to do some research to be a little more sure. To see how we can do that better, we organised a Smashing Meets on UX-research.
With three talks on UX research we had some answers — and a lot more questions — to bring our projects forward!
Our latest edition focused on (design) ethics, and what you can do to make things g̶o̶o̶d̶ better. There are inspiring talks about (the ethics of) Web3, and ‘selling’ ethical design decisions.
This edition focused on Accessibility, hence the ‘Meets for All’. We had 2 talks, a showcase and a lively panel discussion, on how to really build in an accessible way.
We really felt the ‘Meets for Speed’ — so we hosted a few amazing talks, demos and a panel discussion, on the Why and How of web performance.
CSSummer 🏄🌞🕶July 8, 2021
In the CSSummer edition in early July — we hosted 2 amazing talks on CSS and a panel discussion on our favorite coding language, CSS 😻.
A special edition — Actions Speak Louder — where our Smashing experts helped the friendly Power.Coders NGO to improve their site, live, and the audience learned a few things on UX, HTML/CSS and A11y along the way!
