Over the past few months, many organizations have struggled in one way or another. Smashing, too, has had to get creative and we’ve had to rethink our conferences and workshops. In this post, I’ll share what we’ve learned about taking our workshops online.
When difficulties began back in March, it was essential that we reacted quickly. There was no huge deposit in the bank, no friendly investment to rely on — this small company has been fully independent since day one. So we got together and discussed what to do. Obviously, the situation wasn’t going to clear up in a week or two, and we had to figure out how to recalibrate not only our offering but also the way we ran things.
Rachel came up with the idea of putting our in-person front-end and UX workshops online. After all, all of us are mostly stuck at home, so let’s make the best of it. If we can’t travel to learn together, we’ll bring the workshops to everyone around the world.
