CSSconf EU Friday, June 1st 2018 Berlin, Germany


Dedicated to everyone who loves and writes CSS: On June 1st 2018, CSSconf EU will gather the international CSS community in Berlin, Germany. This is your chance to meet top-notch engineers & web designers, world-class speakers, and CSS-loving people at this one-day, one-track conference.

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.

Festival Area

Introduced in 2017, we again will have a Festival Area! Part of the large and beautiful venue will be dedicated just to fun activities and short live demos that you can check out during breaks.

Supporting Companies: CSSconf EU wouldn’t be possible without the support of great companies: our sponsors! Many of them will be available for chats and demos in our Festival Area. Make sure to stop by at the booths of our supporters.

Community Area: The CSS Community is awesome, and we’re proud to have some fantastic contributors and organizers as our guests. Come and meet them, get a demo, and learn how you can get involved too.

Fun Stuff: We got you covered. During breaks, you can meet the crew behind { live : JS } and explore their audio/visual arts, learn from SDW printshop how the CSSconf bag is printed, take selfies with friends in our photo booth, play foosball, or relax in a beanbag and take a little break.

Social Events


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 - this year sponsored by our friends from talent.io! Join us May 31, from 7pm at Oberhafenkantine, Am Flutgraben 2, 12435 Berlin-Treptow. Free drinks as long as they last - so better not be late…


CSSconf EU Garden Dinner supported by the AMP Project: This year, after the talks have ended and the big family photo has been taken, we’ll come together for food, drinks and, most importantly, we’ll end the day with a nice garden dinner at the banks of the Spree, where you can talk and discuss the events of the day with fellow CSSconf EU attendees.

Musical guest

And for everyone who likes to sit back with their drink and digest the day’s input, we have a special treat waiting: our musical guests for the evening, duo Trippner&Demmin! Matthias Trippner and Sebastian Demmin are well amongst the technically best musicians Berlin’s Jazz and Electronic scene has to offer. They’ve remixed and composed for artists like Daft Punkt, A-HA or the electronica visionaires from Terranova. We’re very excited to welcome them at our conference!

JSConf EU pre party: After our CSSconf Dinner you’re invited to attend the pre party of JSConf EU, from 9pm!

Travel & Transport

Berlin’s Airports

Berlin has two airports, both of which are located close to the city center, a 30-minute taxi ride from the venue (ca. EUR 30). There are also trains and buses that connect the airports to Berlin’s city center.

Public Transport

Berlin has many public transport options. The subway, trains, buses, trams are all operated by BVG. We recommend getting one of the tourist tickets for the length of your stay – this will allow you to use all subway trains, trams and buses in all of Berlin, plus it comes with discounts for popular sights, museums, and other attractions.


Berlin’s flat geography, its many bike lanes and the friendly weather in early June make it perfect to get around by bike! Check with your hotel or hostel if they have bikes to rent out, or find your perfect bike at one of the many bike rental places.


Taxis in Berlin are affordable and everywhere. You can usually hail one on the street, or use apps like MyTaxi to order one.


Below are a two hotels we recommend, both a short walk away from our venue. If neither of those fit your needs, check out HRS or private accommodation options like AirBnB or Couchsurfing.

If you’d like to team up with other attendees to travel to or stay in Berlin, let us and the community know on Twitter: #cssconfeu – we will help spread the word!
