It’s hard to capture the experience of being at a SmashingConf, however, we have made the videos from our Toronto event available so that everyone can learn from the insights our speakers shared — many of them coding live on stage.

We have edited and prepared the video from SmashingConf Toronto, and it is all now live for you to watch and learn from. To get a feel for the event, watch our compilation. We think that it really captures the atmosphere of a SmashingConf!

The Day One Collaborative Doc created by attendees is full of takeaways from the first day of the conference. You might find some of those notes helpful as you watch the video linked below.
