About The Book

With so much happening in front-end and UX these days, it’s getting really hard to stay afloat, isn’t it? New technologies and techniques appear almost daily, and so navigating through it all in regular projects is daunting and time-consuming. Frankly, we just don’t have time to afford betting on a wrong strategy. That’s why we created Smashing Book 6, our shiny new book that explores uncharted territories and seeks to establish a map for the brave new front-end world.

You know the drill: the book isn’t about tools; it’s about workflow, strategy and shortcuts to getting things done well. Respected members of the community explore how to build accessible single-page apps with React or Angular, how to use CSS Grid Layout, CSS Custom Properties and service workers as well as how to load assets on the web in times of HTTP/2 and bloated third-party scripts.

We’ll also examine how to make design systems work in real-life, how to design and build conversational interfaces, AR/VR, building for chatbots and watches and how to bring responsive art-direction back to the web.

Print shipping in late September 2018., hardcover + eBook. 432 pages. Written by Laura Elizabeth, Marcy Sutton, Rachel Andrew, Mike Riethmueller, Harry Roberts, Lyza D. Gardner, Yoav Weiss, Adrian Zumbrunnen, Greg Nudelman, Ada Rose Cannon and Vitaly Friedman. Pre-order the book today.

Why This Book Is For You

We worked hard to design the book in a way that it doesn’t become outdated quickly. That’s why it’s more focused on strategy rather than tooling. It’s about how we do things, but not necessarily the tools we all use to get there.

Urban Heroes

A post shared by Tina Roth Eisenberg (@swissmiss) on Jun 11, 2018 at 3:00pm PDT

I live for these joyful NYC moments: I stood on a subway platform waiting for a train to arrive when these two women showed up, casually taking an impressive amount of balloons onto the subway. Urban heroes! Swipe right to see the video. Watch the guy on the right very very slowly realize what’s happening. I LOVE NYC!
