The conference for anyone who loves Sass and dreams about building a better web.

NOV 11-14 · AUSTIN, TX

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.

Community, collaboration, and breakfast tacos!

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.

SassConf has set the bar very high; what an amazing event! SassConf has set the

Where to Stay

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!

Venue

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!

Brazos Hall is a venue unlike any other in the heart of downtown. Brazos Hall is a venue

we can’t do it without you!
can you sponsor sassconf?

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!

Code of Conduct

SassConf is dedicated and committed to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. Sexual and discriminating language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks.

We expect participants to follow these rules at all conference venues and conference-related social events. Sponsor or vendor booths, booth staff and volunteers are also subject to the anti-harassment policy.

Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event. Conference participants violating these rules will be escorted from the conference without a refund.

We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified by special badges.

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference.

Contact information for organizers will be provided to ticketed attendees and speakers and available here during the conference.

This anti-harassment policy is based on the example policy from the Geek Feminism wiki, created by the Ada Initiative and other volunteers.
