SassConf is a 3-day event that brings together a far-flung community of front-end developers, designers, architects, and web enthusiasts who dream of building a better web. Originally born out of NYC’s GothamSass meetup, SassConf has grown from a language-specific conference to an event on the cutting edge of front-end technology.
The Sass community is a welcoming, ego-free, open-minded, and diverse group of people. We strive to make SassConf reflect and further that atmosphere. At SassConf your eyes will be opened to how technology can create not just websites, but revolutionary change.
A ticket to SassConf includes two days of talks, lightning talks, four included workshops at a variety of skill levels, and for the first time this year, moderated small group discussions.
The third day, our signature Unconf is an organic day where attendees can present, hack, and learn together. And of course, you’ll be there for all the parties & our much beloved all-speaker panel. In addition, we are offering four workshops as add-ons to your ticket.
Not everyone has the financial capability to attend conferences, and this burden falls heavily on already marginalized groups. Help us make SassConf diverse not only on stage but off, too, by contributing to our diversity fund! Your help—as well as sponsorships—will be crucial to making this happen.
We recommend staying at one of the many hotels within walking distance of the venue.
Watch this space—we'll be sharing great Austin places to eat, drink, grab a coffee, work, sightsee, and more!
Brazos Hall is a turn-of-the-century warehouse building at the corner of 4th and Brazos, right in the heart of downtown Austin. Hang out in the huge restored downstairs to watch the talks; catch the all-speaker panel and closing party upstairs on the open-air roofdeck.
For lunch, wander to all of downtown’s myriad restaurant options, relax on the Capitol lawn with sandwich, or hop over to famous South Congress Ave for something a little more funky.
Stay tuned for Unconference & workshops venues!
If you're looking to put your sponsorship dollars to good use, we have great ways to get you noticed and contribute to the incredible experience we promise our attendees.
We'd love to be able to offer as many diversity scholarships as possible, and we are looking for a couple sponsors to help make that happen.
If you or your company can sponsor, no matter how big or small, please get in touch with us at sponsors at sassconf.com!
We crunched the numbers from 2015 and the results were revelatory. For starters, we had 81 total submissions!
We know this announcement has been a long time coming, so first, thank you for being patient with us. Over the past month, we’ve done speaker selection, crunched...
Our goal for speaker selection in 2015 was this:
“more unique content from each speaker, consistently high presentation quality, and diverse types of sessions...
