Last Week, Patrick and I went to the SmashingConf held in the Midtown. SmashingConf is a great event focusing on design and front-end filed.
The conference is one track, two-day event with two days workshop. Amazing speakers including John Meade( as Mystery Speaker), Debbie Millman (will run for NYC mayor election?! ) shared knowledge including how to coop between designers and front-end developers, how to improve the performance of webpage, the marketing strategies, how to increase website accessibility, how to build PWA and why and etc.
The workshops I attended were talking about vue.js(light front-end frame) and web accessibility (Screen Reader, MS high contrast mode)
