Dedicated to everyone who loves and writes CSS: On May 31st 2019, 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 five 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, and are committed to accessibility.
Date & Venue
CSSconf EU will take place on May 31st, 2019 in Berlin’s Arena Halle, offering a day packed with inspiring and insightful talks and time well spent in the company of great people. Building on our experiences from previous years we’re planning on using the big venue even more and present you a wonderful CSSconf EU Festival full of surprises.

Speakers, Topics, Language
CSSconf EU unites top international speakers and newcomers with fresh ideas. They will discuss cutting-edge technologies and questions around front-end development and web design – with a specific focus on CSS.
Talks are always in English, and video recordings will be released for free after the event. All speakers are selected via an open Call for Speakers.
Our chefs and coffee specialists will make sure you don’t go hungry or run the risk of low caffeination throughout the day. You can expect quality coffee, a full breakfast, healthy lunch with various options, and hearty dinner. All meals are vegetarian and include vegan and gluten-free options. We will publish the full menu closer to the event.
Until sold out, you can buy tickets here.
In 2019, we will dedicate our Festival Area to the celebration of the 10th anniversary of JSConf / CSSconf EU! Part of our large and beautiful venue will be dedicated to fun activities, community presentations, and short live demos that you can check out during breaks.
You’ll be able to: meet the companies that support CSSconf EU, chat with the people behind open source projects / community initiatives, see the CSSconf bags getting printed, take selfies in our photo booth, play foosball, charge up your phones, grab a frozen yogurt, take a break on our beanbags… and more fun stuff that we are still planning!
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 Lounge: 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.
We do our best to ensure that the conference, venue and events throughout the day are accessible, so that all attendees can wholly participate in and enjoy the conference. As part of our commitment to accessibility, we’re bringing real-time transcription (CART) to CSSconf EU. There will be a live feed of every word of each talk. Read our full accessibility statement.
Travel & Transport
Berlin has two airports, both of which are located close to the city center, a 30-minute taxi ride from the venue (ca. EUR 35). There are also trains and buses that connect the airports to Berlin’s city center.
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 late May 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 20 minute walk away from our venue. If neither of those fit your needs, check out HRS, booking.com, or private accommodation options like AirBnB or Couchsurfing.
