ARTIFACT is a conference for web designers and developers about optimizing sites for mobile devices, accessibility, and inclusivity.
ARTIFACT is known for its all-star speaker line-ups, an intimate single-track format, fostering a sense of camaraderie in the designer/developer community, and hosting memorable events. It got its start with events in 2013 and 2014 in Austin, TX and Providence, RI that addressed the challenges of designing for mobile devices. In 2019, it expanded its scope to creating inclusive sites that work not only for a multitude of devices, but for all the people who use them.
