Wait, We Can Re-use this? Design Systems and Component Libraries for Fun and Profit
Presented by Aaron Couch
Component libraries can help speed development, improve implementation of designs, aid in improving accesibility, and help teams re-use design and component assets across projects.
But what is "atomic design" are all of these atoms and molecules and organisms right for you? What if you are using a Content Management System like Drupal?
This talk explores some of the benefits of using a design system and component library using one of the largest counties in the U.S. as a guide. We will look at some tools to help get you going, some of the challenges we've faced, and some pitfalls to look out for.
This talk is for designers, devs, pms or anyone interested in using component libraries. Our example uses Drupal though we will try and provide examples for Wordpress as well. We won't dive into code though may look at a front-end snippet or too.
