    Joakim, as you mentioned you turned your spreadsheet into website, I'm curious: is the website run by the spreadsheet as a database/CMS?

    Dope website, @Joakim. Love the illustrations, and the fact that it's so useful. Curious: how did you build the site? Plain HTML/CSS? Or did you use a CMS?

      As I can see from the favicon, he used Webflow.

        That's correct. I used Webflow with some custom .js for the filtering.

        I should update that favicon...

          Cool. Thanks Joakim. Never tried Webflow but your site now piqued my interest in using it. Do you code? Wondering if using Webflow to make something like that is manageable for someone like me who doesn't know code...

    Dropbox and intercom illustration style? Where did this trend come from?

      ...Dropbox and Intercom?

        dropbox.com, intercom.com and now this site have started to use this strange and child-like illustration style. I don't know where the trend began but I kind of hope it dies because I personally find it to look hideous and crude. (My opinion)

          To each their own, I suppose. I personally love it, I feel like it gives much needed personality to the flat design movement. Allows for more creativity in place of skeuomorphism.

          P.S. I think you missed my joke. You asked who started this trend, and then listed who started the trends.

          There was a bit of similar buzz around the time when Google did their major rebrand.... 2015 was it? Kindergarten-chic I think people were calling it. You can also see it at Basecamp and KnowYourCompany.

          If I'm getting philosophical about it, I think it's a materialization of the "so easy a child could use it" ethos. The cynic in me wants to think that instead of actually making the products easier to use and achieving those goals, it's much easier to project the outward aesthetic of having achieved those goals. Very much tell, don't show.

          That being said I'm not at all criticizing this site! I personally love the aesthetic and the work you've put into it Joakim, I'm just speaking to where I think the larger influencing forces of this aesthetic come from.

          Cheers!

    I think you weren't prepared for the traffic or you are actively working on it because it's currently down for me! :(

    Hey, that's cool! I'm willing to give you a hand if you want to include confs in South America. This is happening, for example: http://cssconfar.com

      Thanks man. I've got a number of SA conferences in my spreadsheet. It's definitely something I'll add in the future. It does get kinda tricky as soon as the region is not english speaking so I might need some assistance from someone who knows latin languages :)

    Was just looking for something like this. I found a Medium article, but really wanted to filter and couldn't. Filtering by location and THEN month is very helpful. :)

    Pretty useful but I still prefer https://www.neonmoire.com for all the content around the events. Also Thomas is a nice guy.

      Yes I discovered Neon Moire while building Fieldtrips. As you say he's very focused on content around a select few design conferences. Fieldtrips is focused on giving a wide overview.

    Pretty dope! I got excited when I saw the Layers conference in San Diego, but it's actually in San Jose :(
