Abstract

This is a modified version of the talk I gave in Reactfoo about design systems to cater to the wider audience of developers and designers.

Building high quality interfaces that are consistent across products and teams is hard. When we reach to a point where design and development tools converge and our workflows will have to embrace each other, we might be faced with a LOT of work. Collaboration between designers and developers has been a pain point since, well forever? But fear not, Design Systems is the solution!

Join Siddharth for this practical talk to learn what a design system is, how to build it from scratch; and how to convince your boss that it’s something worth to invest in!

Outline

This is a modified version of the talk I gave in Reactfoo about design systems to cater to the wider audience of developers and designers.

Target Group: Designers and developers both, The talk is about bridging the collaboration gap between designers and developers

I feel this is a topic worth talking about because there is a lot of work being done in this space by multiple companies to reach a point where design + development tools converge and our workflows will embrace each other.

I give practical tips that the audience can take back to their work. All of the tools I talk about are either open source or have a free tier.

The audience will learn what a design system is (hint: it’s not just a component library), how to build a design system from scratch with the technical and people decisions decisions you need to make; and how to convince your boss that it’s something you should invest in!
