A conference about bringing groundbreaking ideas to life with Cameron McEfee & Jon Rohan from GitHub, Estelle Weyl from Standardista, Tomomi Imura @girlie_mac, Joey Primiani from Backplane, Tantek Çelik from Mozilla, and more.
Top talent in the industry will cover best practices of HTML5, CSS3, UX/UI and Mobile Design, focusing on product design for an optimal user experience. Like all previous CASCADE SF events, attendees will leave with sparks, fresh perspectives and cutting-edge skills from highly engaging presentations.
Breakfast includes an espresso and belgium waffle bar and lunch will be served from a variety of local restaurants to promote small businesses and give everyone a taste of the delicious food in San Francisco.
“CASCADE SF has become a must-attend event series in the Bay Area for designers/front end devs. Andi’s got a knack for pulling together all the key ingredients for top-notch educational events: cool venues, giveaways, relevant sponsors and of course, great speakers. My company has sponsored several of her events, and she’s been a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She’s very responsive to one-off requests and goes out of her way to make sure your company gets the most out of being involved.”
Director of Marketing at ZenCash
“Andi is an outstanding creative individual as well as a very talented technical resource. We’ve worked together at several Adobe events and Andi is always on top of things during the planning stages. When the day of the event arrives, I am always shocked at how smoothly everything runs (I wish I could be as prepared as she is for my Creative Suite Lovers events). I would highly recommend Andi as a business associate and colleague and look forward to doing more events with her in the future.”
Public Speaker and Evangelist of the San Francisco Design Community
"Andi organizes really great events with enlightening speakers. She does an extraordinary job of marketing events as well as design for technical and traditional channels. If I had to put together an event and/or conference centered around tech or startup related design, Andi would be the first person contacted on my list."

Estelle = awesome and brilliant. Great talk.
Web Designer / Developer at IGN Entertainment
Great presentation, very professional and well structured. Came at me a little fast, but that’s primarily because I’ve been out of the loop for a couple of years and I’m just getting back into web development. If things were a just a little bit more introductory, I would have given five stars. I got the impression that there is a heavier lean towards CSS experts in the group, so it’s understandable. Also, bonus points for having the session recorded so that it can be replayed later.
Technical Director at Novare Biologistics

Co-Founder and CEO, iQuarkt
“Andi is the type of person that you want running an organization: She's passionate about web design, has many connections with which to bring about authoritative speakers and innovators, and is personable (and fun!) so that you can easily go up and talk to her about anything. She also works hard to make sure everything works logistically, from starting on time to having tasty treats & drinks for attendees.”
