Mission & Values
CSSconf EU is a not-for-profit community conference run by a team of volunteers. We are all active members of the tech community, and run or contribute to various free local meetups, workshops, and education initiatives. With CSSconf EU, we aim to bring the international CSS crowd together with our beloved local Berlin community. We are humbled to look back to three sold-out events where we welcomed the world’s most excellent CSS speakers on our stage, and we are proud to have always put an inclusive and welcoming culture first. We operate under a Code of Conduct, run a scholarship program, write articles to be transparent, and are committed to diversity and accessibility.
Date & Venue
CSSconf EU will 2017 take place on May 5, 2017 in Berlin, offering a day packed with inspiring and insightful talks and time well spent in the company of great people. This year we’re planning the most adventurous and ambitious CSSconf EU ever – be prepared for CSSconf EU, the Festival Edition, featuring a newer, bigger, more exciting venue that we’ll pack with some surprises. More announcements in early 2017.
Speakers, Topics, Language
The CSSconf EU lineup unites top international speakers and newcomers with fresh ideas. They will discuss cutting-edge technologies and questions around front-end development and web design – with a specific focus on CSS.
All speakers are selected via an open Call for Speakers. The voting on all proposals will take place in January 2017, and we’ll announce the lineup shortly thereafter. This process has brought together fantastic speakers in the past years – take a look at the video recordings!
Talks are always in English, and video recordings will be released for free after the event.
We sell tickets in multiple batches, to give everyone a chance to purchase one. You can buy tickets here.
Our chefs and coffee specialists will make sure you don’t go hungry or run the risk of low caffeination throughout the day. You can expect quality coffee, a light breakfast, healthy lunch with various options, and streetfood-style dinner. All meals include vegetarian and vegan options.
Thursday Warm Up: As it has become our tradition in the past years, we will have a small warmup event on the evening before the conference. Details will be anounced here soon.
CSSconf EU Dinner: Around 7pm on Friday, after the talks have ended and the big family photo has been taken, we’ll come together for food, drinks and, most importantly, to talk and discuss the events of the day with fellow CSSconf EU attendees. We’ll serve a streetfood-style dinner and snacks, including tasty vegan and vegetarian options, to keep you sated.
CSSconf Closing Party: What would a great day be if it didn’t end in celebration! The party will take place at the conference venue, so there’ll be no long walks from dinner to drinks to party. Friends, family and the community are also welcome to join us, provided they present a party ticket at the door.
